Was a bad day for me when I found him. He lived for about an hour after I found him. We had been working together on a another homicide.

I am the officer who found him in his car in the parking lot of Div Two in Homewood, IL. Walt was a great friend. And was one heck of a cop. Taught me many things about the job.

We cannot fully honor our heroes of today without acknowledging and honoring our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 48th 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 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.

A tragic end to a nice long career. Though it's been many years since this event, no doubt the pain is still felt by all you left behind. They're in my prayers.

God Bless and may your eternal rest be always peaceful, Brother.

I was a tiny baby when Walter McCarthy, my grandfather, died. I am very happy that he has now been honored here on the ODMP. Thank you to the efforts of everyone here on the ODMP for assisting me in honoring his legacy as a LEO. Our extended family thanks you as well.
