What Happened at 8103 Lilly Stone Drive?

BethesdaMarylandUnited States

  • February 29th, 1976

    Bishop family murders: The home was the scene of the murders of five members of the family of William Bradford Bishop Jr. Bishop’s mother, wife and three sons were beaten to death in their home. The bodies were found in a wooded swamp, 5 miles south of Columbia, North Carolina. They had been burned in a shallow grave. Dental records were used to confirm that the bodies were, indeed, the Bishop family. William Bishop's station wagon was found abandoned at a campground at The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, only a few miles away from the Appalachian Trail. Bishop was added to the FBI's Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list. His motives for the killings were never fully explained, although it is believed that financial troubles may have played a role.

    Not a personal account. Bradford Bishop murdered his wife, mother and three sons in the home located at 8103 Lilly Stone Drive Bethesda, MD 20817 March 1976 Just learning about this horrible story on CNN. Come to find out the home is still there, seemingly not listed or discussed besides in an article from 1977 that discloses the address of the horrendous crime. I would definitely like to know if I were a potential buyer of this home. So there you go, definitely a creepy house. Don't know why it wasn't leveled after the murders 37 years ago.
