Officer John Henry Hill was the brother to my Father and it never left my Father heart. This murder hurt my Father and his parents to their graves. My Father walked the beat with his brother and held his brother in his arms as he died.

Many people are not aware, but Officer Hill was killed on the very site where our brand new City of Altus Municipal Complex is located. The Altus Police Department is located within the city complex, and was completed in October of 2010.

I had the pleasure of escorting Officer Hill's family to the memorial wreath in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, at the Law Enforcement Memorial. I watched as Officer Hill's family placed a single rose onto the wreath in his memory. Officer Hill's family gave me a photograph of Officer Hill at the memorial service, and I in turn, gave the photograph to the Police Department. The photograph is now proudly displayed in the lobby area of our Police Department, and the story of this incident is included.

By the generous outpour of support from our community, we are now making plans for a memorial bench and stone to be placed at the location where Officer Hill was murdered.

The Altus Police Department and the City of Altus honors Officer Hill... We will not forget your sacrafice!
