Local News


Waco police say a 57-year-old woman is dead and her 33-year-old son has been arrested following a Monday murder.

The victim has been identified as Yun Bishop and her son, Lonnie Bishop was arrested at the scene and taken to the McLennan County Jail.

Waco PD spokesman Garen Bynum said it was about 6:12 PM Monday when Waco PD officers were dispatched to a residence in the 700 block of N. 11th St. in Waco, TX in reference to a domestic disturbance.

As officers arrived on-scene, they met a male on the front porch of the residence. As officers were talking with the male, they heard him say that his mother was dead and that he had killed her.

Out of concern for the male’s mother, the officers took the male into custody and entered the home.

Once inside, they located a female victim lying in a bed with injuries they said they believed came from blunt force trauma.

Emergency medical personnel were called to the scene, and confirmed that she was dead.
