Assistant SAC Whicher was one of eight federal agents killed in a terrorist attack carried out against the United States government.


Eight federal law enforcement agents and one local sheriff's deputy were killed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, when domestic terrorists detonated a truck bomb outside of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19th, 1995.

A total of 168 civilians and government workers, including numerous children in an on-site daycare facility, were killed in the terrorist attack.

The terrorists attacked the building in retaliation for a search warrant and raid on the compound of a cult known as the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas, on February 28th, 1993. Four special agents with the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms were slain during the raid, which culminated on April 19th, 1993, with a mass murder-suicide in which over 80 members of the Branch Davidians cult died.

Both subjects involved in the bombing were arrested. One of the men was sentenced to life while the other was sentenced to death. He was subsequently executed on June 11th, 2001.

It's a great honor for me to visit you at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Silver Spring, Maryland because I still live close by there. Went today to St. Patrick's for Mass to pray especially for you and then to pay my respects to you where you are buried. I am still a parishioner at St. Patrick's Church and I recall seeing you, back in the early 90's, bringing your family in to the Sunday Masses. Didn't even know you were a Secret Service Agent. What I recall seeing was a Husband and Father taking his young family - a beautiful family! - to Church. May God Bless You Always for your devotion to - and love for - your family. And please accept my sincere Thanks for your service and ultimate sacrifice.
