Deputy Horlocker I was totally surprised when I came across someone that has been killed in the line of duty at the agency I currently work for. I have been here for almost 11 years and have never knew or even heard of this tragic incident before yesterday. The roads and everything is so different from then of 1924 and took me a while to figure out where this had taken place inside of Delaware County, but I do think i have it closely pinned down. I am going to continue to research this incident. I am glad to work for the same agency as you once did. It is an honor for me to be writing to you. Rest in Peace my Brother I will assure you that you will not be forgotten.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 89th anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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 in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace.
