Conway Charles LeBleu

Special Agent Conway LeBleu was one of four federal agents killed when they raided the compound of a religious cult for weapons violations.

Four agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms were shot and killed in a raid on the Branch Davidian Compound in Waco, Texas. The Branch Davidians were a religious cult that idolized their leader, David Koresh. A two-month standoff followed the initial raid and ended when the Branch Davidians conducted a mass murder-suicide, by gunfire and fire, which resulted in the deaths of over 80 of its members.

The raid was the catalyst for the terrorist bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on April 19, 1995 - exactly two years after the mass suicide. The terrorist bombing claimed the lives of 168 people, including eight federal law enforcement agents.

High school friend and teammate and fellow LEO. I was a year ahead of you. I know that as teammates, you looked up to me. In hindsight our relationship as teammates meant very little in the scheme of things. It was really our friendship that meant something. I remember hearing after I left Lake Charles for my Air Force career that I heard you were going to become a federal agent. I remember thinking that it was a great choice for you, and I knew you'd be a great cop. I had no idea that you'd be a hero, gone from us way too soon. And so now it is me, looking up to you. Thank you for your service to the nation. I met your supervisor at a terrorism course I attended at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. We talked about you. We cried. He still has your picture in his wallet. He's proud of you. So am I. We all are, Conway.
