Terrance Yeakey, a sergeant at the Oklahoma City Police Department, was the first to arrive at the scene of the Oklahoma City Bombing. His heroic actions that day saved the lives of multiple people, who he pulled from the rubble after the explosion. His death remains a controversial mystery, for good reason.
Terrance Yeakey was born on November 9, 1965. He served in the US military and joined the Oklahoma City Police Department in 1989. Yeakey was the first to arrive when an explosion struck the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building on April 19, 1995.
His family and friends say that he saw something disturbing at the site that day, prompting Yeakey to reject the government narrative of the attack and conduct a private investigation. Yeakey did not discuss what he saw that day, and even kept specific details of his investigation from his close relatives and friends.
“It’s not true. It’s not what they are saying. It didn’t happen that way,” said Yeakey.
He then began to receive strange and threatening phone calls at his home by unknown persons. Yeakey told people close to him that he believed he was being intimidated and monitored by federal agents.
Tanya Yeakey, the wife of Terrance Yeakey, said “We had people putting nails in our tires, breaking our back windows, just strange bizzare little things” and “after his death, it continued” in an interview conducted by Craig Roberts and Ken Rank.
After Yeakey found “evidence of a cover-up of the bombing by federal agents,” he was found dead just three days before he was set to receive a Medal of Valor from the Oklahoma City Police Department on May 11, 1996 for his actions during the Oklahoma City Bombing.
The official report is that Yeakey committed suicide, however, the circumstance of his death raises serious questions and concerns.
