After being unable to reach him again by radio, his backup officer found him with a single gunshot wound to the head and one round fired from his revolver, still in his hand. Despite a massive investigation, no suspects were ever identified.

Uncle Bobby,
You are never forgotten. We think about you so often and enjoy all the memories we had as a family. I miss your antics as an uncle. One thing for sure, I made sure to be an uncle to nephews and nieces as you were to us. I wanted them to know how a “cool” uncle can be. Thank you for those memories. And thank you for handcuffing me so often…it kept me out of trouble! Your case caused me to become a forensic scientist. One day Justice will be served on your behalf. Whether on this earth or after, God will bring Justice for you. We love you and miss you.
