VERSAILLES, IN (FOX19) - A Versailles, Ind. native has died overseas while serving with the Marines.

WRBI Radio in Batesville says John Bishop, 25, was killed this week in Afghanistan.

Bishop's family was notified Wednesday. His father, Gene Bishop, has passed away, and his mother, Sarah Thomas, lives in Columbus, Ind. She flew to Delaware Thursday to meet Bishop's body.

The family tells WRBI that Bishop leaves behind a wife who is also in the Marines and stationed in North Carolina, a 4-year-old son and a baby on the way.

He attended South Ripley High School for his junior year before graduating from Southwest Shelby High School, then joining the Marines.
