Lawrence R. Highley, DSN 930, was commissioned as a Police Officer on 10/29/1925. Officer Highley served in the 7Th and the 3Rd Districts during his career. Officer Highley retired on 12/16/1962 from the Saint Louis Metropolitan Police Department.

In his retirement Officer Highley, drove to his ex daughter-in-laws residence whereas an argument ensued over personal matters involving his son, whom has just committed suicide a few weeks earlier over an Internal Affairs Division complaint. Mr. Highley believing that the ex-daughter-in-law caused the investigation and complaint against his son shot her several times. Mr. Highley only left that residence believing that she was now expired as a result of her wounds, and he then committed suicide with his weapon. The ex daughter-in-law did survive this incident.

Due to the length of time since this Officers passing no department negative's or photo's are on file.
