He allegedly bludgeoned his family members to death at their home in Bethseda Md. in 1976. Their burned bodies were found in a shallow grave in Columbia N.C..  
They day after they were killed Bishop's last confirmed sighting was at a sporting goods store in Jacksonville N.C..

'Cold blooded' Paul Curry guilty of wife's 1994 murder

A "vicious, cold blooded" former nuclear engineer who was driven by an "insatiable appetite for money" was convicted of the 1994 murder of his wife.
Paul Curry gave a sleeping pill to his wife Linda and then poisoned her with a shot of nicotine because he wanted the $547.695 payout from her life insurance policy, prosecutors said.
The 57-year-old was questioned by cops after her death but it wasn't until 2010 that prosecutors put a case together and alleged that he murdered her.
Deputy District Attorney Ebrahim Baytieh said she had a level of the sleeping aid Ambien, in her system after she was found at their San Onofre, Calif. home. This had not been prescribed to her, he said.
She also had injection marks on the temple behind her ears, he added.
