William Ross Stewart

Agent William Stewart was shot and killed as he and members of the Woodward Police Department conducted a narcotics operation at a local chain restaurant. Agent Stewart and one of the detectives approached the suspect, who was sitting in a van parked in the parking lot. As the three talked the man fired a 12 gauge shotgun, killing Agent Stewart and wounding the detective.

The suspect fled the scene and buried the shotgun. He was arrested a short time later and the murder weapon was recovered. The man was convicted of Agent Stewart's murder and sentenced to life in prison. He has a parole hearing in November of 2016.

Agent Stewart is survived by three daughters and a granddaughter.

Think of you so often, even as of recent I have met officers, agents and others who knew you and of you and the awesome person and agent you were. I love hearing stories of you now even more than ever, love hearing that others appreciated you and what you did also.

If anyone that knew my Dad has a story and would like to share with me I would love it hear about it, work or personal.
