Chief Vaughan, though it's been over 100 years since your tragic murder, you have not been forgotten. It brings closure to know the other officer (who I pray lived a long happy life and had a long career with the Carver PD) was able to end the danger to himself and the public by ending your killer's life. You are a hero.

Carver is not exactly a big town now; no doubt it was much smaller in 1908. I would guess the sense of loss caused by your death was felt very strongly and deeply by the citizens as no doubt, everyone in town knew you.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 99th anniversary year 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 who was murdered on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace.
