Oklahoma City, OK – Instead of being treated as the hero he truly was, Sgt. Terrance Yeakey was silenced by his own government in an effort to keep him from exposing their complicity in one of the largest mass murders in American history – which senselessly ended the lives of 168 people, including 19 children.

According to his widow, instead of being showered with accolades by the US government for his heroism, Yeakey was killed, with his death being framed to look like a suicide (although a very poorly staged one) only days before receiving the police department’s Medal of Valor for his heroic rescue efforts on day of the Oklahoma City bombing.

On May 11, 1996, only days after his Yeakey’s death, the New York Times ran a story with the headline – ‘A Policeman Who Rescued 4 in Bombing Kills Himself’ – but the bold assertion — that hero cop Sgt. Terrance Yeakey killed himself — couldn’t be further from the truth.

While the NY Times article claimed that Yeakey committed suicide because he was living in such emotional pain from not being able to do more to help the people injured in the bombing, and that he was suffering from intense survivor guilt which he was unable to manage, this information has been repeatedly refuted by Yeakey’s family.

In an effort to further muddy the waters surrounding his death, the Times story went on to claim:


“The police are investigating a report that Sergeant Yeakey had violated an order barring him from going near his former wife, said Capt. Bill Citty, a spokesman. Sergeant Yeakey also had a similar order against her, Captain Citty said. Efforts to locate her today were unsuccessful.”

Let’s set the record straight.

Sgt. Yeakey’s body was found in a field in El Reno, OK, over a mile away from his abandoned vehicle. There was an extremely large amount of blood found in his vehicle, he had been bound, had rope burn on his neck, ligature marks on his wrists, numerous deep cuts, likely tortured and killed execution-style with a single bullet that entered his right temple at a 45-degree angle. To top it off, no gun was found at the scene of his death — until an FBI agent showed up and suspiciously found a gun in an already thoroughly searched area within 5 minutes of being there.

Sgt. Terrance Yeakey was a 7-year veteran of the Oklahoma City PD, one of the first on the scene of the OKC bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Yeakey became known as a hero after saving the lives of eight people on the morning of April 19, 1995. However, he was uncomfortable being looked at as a hero and didn’t consider himself one, only as a man doing his job.

Far from being suicidal, Yeakey was in the process of achieving some major life goals. He was scheduled for a final interview for a job with the FBI in Irving, TX, and with hopes of being hired to work for the FBI in Dallas. In direct contradiction to the Times nebulous reporting about the Yeakey’s potential relationship trouble, the couple had recently reconciled and had discussed getting remarried.

The real story behind Yeakey’s death, as attested to by his ex-wife, Tonia Yeakey, is that he witnessed things during his response to the bombing which did not agree with the ‘official version’ of events being forwarded by law enforcement and national media at that time and began collecting evidence to support his contentions.

In an interview on AM1300 KAKC, in 1998, Tonia Yeakey clearly exposes the reality underpinning the death of Terrance Yeakey. The extremely important interview with Tonia Yeakey can be heard in the video below — and begins at the 8-minute mark (please watch):

Although no one is sure exactly what Yeakey witnessed, or what exact information he had collected, according to friends and family, he was being intimidated by federal authorities due to his pursuit of the truth and the information in his possession. Additionally, forces within the OCPD were trying to pressure him into signing off on a version of events from the morning of the bombing to which Terry was resistant to do, as he wanted his report to reflect the truth as he witnessed it, according to his ex-wife Tonia.

Essentially, Yeakey was under constant pressure for his refusal to go along with official versions of events during and after the OKC bombing; and because of his refusal to change his story about what he saw that fateful day, he was the target of horrific persecution from his brothers in law enforcement.

Yeakey had compiled his findings in a storage facility outside of El Reno, Oklahoma. Adding weight to the theory that he was “suicided” to keep him quiet, his last known words were,

“As soon as I shake these Feds that are following me, I’ll be back and we’ll go to dinner.”

Terrance Yeakey was never heard from again.

Immediately upon being notified of Terrance Yeakey’s death, his family insisted that Yeakey had not killed himself — and to this day they maintain that he was murdered and DID NOT commit suicide.

The reality is that there was a high-level federal operation called PATCON, which infiltrated the “patriot movement” across the US, during the Clinton administration, with informants and provocateurs that are likely connected in some way to the OKC bombing. It’s more than probable that Yeakey’s killing was carried out in an effort to cover up the extent to which federal assets, working under PATCON (i.e. informants/provocateurs/infiltrators), were involved in the OKC bombing plot, thus shielding the federal government from potential blowback.

Please watch the extremely informative and startling video below about Sgt. Terrance Yeakey and learn in more detail about the events that surrounded Terry’s death.

Please share this story to help expose this vast coverup — and the murder of a real American hero!

    Sounds like they killed him for “seeing too much”, the following media smear job, being standard operating procedure, for these kinds of domestic secret war crimes…..

    • Steve Rusk

      Not for seeing too much, he was killed for telling others about what he saw.

  • Nice job. William Griggs (recently passed) also has many research links on his site – freedominourtime.blogspot.com related to Okc conspiracy investigations and connections to Kenneth Trentadue: And James Corbett, who you obviously know about, has a variety of other videos on the topic at his site.

  • Greg81

    Yes. He killed himself by tying his hands together and shooting himself in the back of the head. Twice!

  • Mother Earth

    Immediately after the bombing the Clinton constabulary went straight to the building and gathered up all the paperwork they could find regarding all the crooked deals they made while the victims were being loaded into ambulances, this was a murder covered up by a corrupt and disloyal system who killed anyone in their way .

      I think you might be confusing the bombing with the suicide (murder) of Vince Foster who was very upset according to his wife over Waco. After his body was found Hillary Clinton had a staff member remove files from Vince Foster’s office and the rumor is that those files had to do with Waco. It’s easy to get confused because it’s so much corruption and deception.

      • Mother Earth

        Soo true, their is corruption on every level of Admin that it’s hard to keep up with, we’ve lost a lot of good honest men to the devil and his advocates.

    I was in a very close relationship with one of the Branch Davidians who survived the fire. He was a prisoner at the El Reno Oklahoma federal prison. I was a very vocal activist over what happened known as ‘Waco’. I held meetings that were announced on William Bill Cooper’s hour of the time shortwave radio broadcasts.

    People from all walks of life would attend those meetings which I held at the Tulsa central library, some driving from as far as 800 miles away. People were upset about Waco. The nation was divided at the time and the ‘patriot movement’ was exploding. I’m not just referring to militia people- the meetings were very diverse. You’d see every ethnicity, LGBT, conservatives, liberals- all together- even law enforcement such as deputies and police who were angry about it also showed up and in their uniforms, it was awesome actually.

    I thought, I HOPED that people were waking up. Also amongst the attendees were two men, they were white men, who portrayed themselves as Christian and pro second amendment and said they were anti government. Back then a popular meme was “I love my country but fear my government”. I believed they were who they said they were. I’m now convinced they were under cover agents, likely FBI.

    I was in my early twenties and much more naive.

    Several days before the OKC bombing I went to visit my friend the Branch Davidian survivor. I would drive over 100 miles to and from the prison twice weekly to visit him. I had gotten to know him and most of the survivors. I had been visiting him for six months at that point with no incidents. But on that day I was not allowed entry to visit and I was told I had been removed from the visiting list and wouldn’t be able to visit him again. I was so upset!

    I drove back to Tulsa and went straight to a coffee shop where I often hung out, but on that day the two Christian men walked in. I had never seen them there before. At the time I was so upset I didn’t put the pieces together. Looking back- they were likely agents who had infiltrated my meetings. They likely even knew I had been banned. I’m sure of it.

    Several days later was April 19, 1995 and I drove down to Waco to Mt. Carmel for the memorial. I will never forget standing at Mt Carmel watching on CNN press monitors (they were there covering the memorial) as the first reports of the bombing came in.

    At first the press blamed the bombing on the Branch Davidians! This was before anyone knew anything! This was just mere minutes after the bombing occurred.

    I’ll never forget the shocked and saddened faces of the Davidians as they heard the news and were being scapegoated by the press. Demonized yet AGAIN.

    I’ll never forget how a senator was interviewed and had legislation in his hand that he was promoting right then and there within 15 minutes of the bombing!!! Legislation that would address the ‘fanatics’ in the patriot movement! He had it waiting and ready to go and it had been drafted before the bombing (of course) it seemed to me as if he knew it was going to happen. It was very surreal.

    At the same time back in Tulsa an hour after the bombing an apt where I had been known to stay, the apt where my ex and my brother lived, was raided by the sheriffs dept., BATF, FBI and Tulsa police! It was clear that they were looking for something to tie me to the bombing. Of course there wasn’t anything. The apt was thoroughly searched even though none of the agencies involved had a warrant! My ex asked to see the warrant. There was no warrant- but that did not stop them.

    In a weird way I was kind of glad it happened because it allowed them to see that I wasn’t involved in anything other than raising awareness and taking a stand against what had happened at Waco by raising my voice.

    But see folks? They aren’t fucking around- they were and are watching- even more so now days. They did infiltrate the patriot movement. I was just a kid pretty much, and was being surveilled by two agents for having patriot meetings at the library.

    But the weird thing was the timing that I was taken off the visiting list in El Reno- why did they shut off my visiting and just days before the bombing?

    I know why they searched that apt. These supposed ‘anti government second amendment Christians’ had shown up at the coffee shop out of nowhere, I didn’t even know how they knew I would be there- I was so pissed off about being taken off the visiting list- I said something stupid to them. I said “the way the government is acting, with there being no genuine justice- it’s just a matter of time before someone starts blowing up government buildings!” Yes I said that. Yes it was stupid. I would NEVER be involved or actually condone such a thing and had I not been irrationally furious at the time wouldn’t have even thought it let alone said it. But damn if that isn’t exactly what happened just several days later. I am a very intuitive person and have ‘tuned in’ to things in a freaky way many times in my life. But that was just freaky. I said what I said only venting. They took it dead seriously.

    My friend in prison was put into protective custody and for a few days was housed in a cell next to Timothy McVeigh but they didn’t speak. He was shipped to another state shortly after because the guards in the El Reno prison held it against him even though he had zero to do with the bombing. I moved to that state and we were basically married. We were very close for many years. The Davidian prisoners were the most hated prisoners in the federal system. I could tell you many stories of abuse at the hands of prison guards. They resented me for coming to visit they resented that my friend had someone who visited they purposely made our visits hellish.

    I attended the resentencing hearing in 1997 and that’s a story to tell too- what happened to the Davidians as they were shipped to the hearing what happened the day of the hearing and after the hearing.

    There is no justice. They can do whatever they want to whomever they want and they will get away with it.

    I have no doubts the man in the above story was murdered. He is one of many casualties of war. We are at war and have been at war for a long time.

  • John C Carleton

    The Feds did it, the bombing. They obviously murdered this man also.

  • Eric Bolt

    Sgt. Terrance Yeakey, Is just one of untold others-! America, will have to find real Investigators to Investigate The Crimes of This & all other ” SUICIDES” & “Accidents-!” Thought I, Knew Him-! Thought I, saw him around these times-! I, too was poisoned like it seems he was also-!

  • Isaac Johnson

    I’m always suspicious when they say a black person committed suicide. growing up that’s something I never seen. none of my friends, family, or people I knew in the black community killed themselves. that’s something I only heard the white kids in school talk about. so when I see black people hanging from trees or a belt around their necks and the cops say its suicide. we in the black community know its bullshit.

  • Wade Johnson

    and the Oklahoma city police spokesman pointed out in the article “capt bill citty”…guess what…he is currently the Oklahoma City Police Chief
