Reflections for Agent Luther Bishop

Luther Bishop is my Great Grandfather. I found this while researching my Grandfather, Leo Bishop, Luther’s son. Luther and his son were both great men and I hope their legacy will live on!

I recently moved into 1515 NW 28th and have been hearing lots of footsteps and voices upstairs, almost nightly. I searched the address on google and found nothing. My boyfriend told his mother about the noises and she did an article search and came up with all of these articles about Luther Bishop! I can't believe that happened in my house 89 years ago! Please email me [email protected] if you have more history on my home.
Thank you all!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 85th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Luther, although to this day your homicide still remains unsolved, the act has caused your exploits as an Agent with the OSBI to be told over and over.

All new Agents coming on learn of what happened to you and of your career. You will always be a prominent part of our history as the oldest state law enforcement agency in Oklahoma. Thanks for being one of those guys that set the standard for those who have followed, including me.

May you rest in peace, and may your family find solace in the sacrafice you made for the citizens of Oklahoma. I further hope that some day we will learn the truth about your murder so that your family may have justice.

God bless your soul for the efforts you gave as an Agent, and God bless your family.

It is shameful that there is no reflection for this state investigator. We honor you Luther. You were a warrior. With brotherly love and utmost respect, Jim Crotty (Former Richmond, VA Police Officer.)
