<quoted text>Is this what you were looking for, or something more recent. There was another cop killed, I can't think of his name right now, on Pyburn street, in the late 80's or early 90's. The guy shot him and then shot his self in the face. I'm pretty sure the guy that shot him is still in prison.
The kid who shot Hand was Eddie Lowery, he was also killed that day, he is not, nor has he ever been in prison.

Shanaree, if its any of my business, could I ask what your mothers name was, her maiden name. if you don't want to answer then I understand, I just thought I might have knew her back then. I hope things haven't been to complicated in your life not knowing your dad. No matter what life deals you or what people may say, just always remember you have a part of your dad with you each day that you look in your childrens eyes. best wishes always

Your Dad - was friends with a guy names Jerry Huckabee - try and get in touch with him - I think he is still in Pocahontas and he should be able to fill you in on what happened - terrible tragedy- I remember the night it happened and never heard much about it except that people always suspected that police may have shot your Dad after he shot himself - and that he meant to shoot Don Garrett- sorry for you loss

I'm sorry I guess I never met your mother or if I did I may remember her face but not her name. I don't know if Eddie's brother Arlow and his wife {Joan} are still around the area or if they are even still alive, his brother wasn't in the greatest health as I remember and that's been years ago. You might also try getting in touch with John Bergman he has lived here all his life and knew Eddie and Arlow and may be able to tell you more information. I hope you find some kind of info that may help you. Best Wishes

What was the event that took place up from the police station. Someone shooting. The swat team was in town for several days before it ended.

Are you talking about a man named Waddell that was held up in a house in a stand off with officers here behind the police station? Can't recall what year that was, but they had to toss tear gas into the residence and they finally got him out of the house and I want to say he went to prison. Can't recall his first name but Waddell was the last name.

Also remember very well Officer Hand and Eddie (I was in school with Eddie and he did have a girlfriend name Sonya but I knew her last name as something else) and Scotty was a great friend of mine, very tragic night that was also. I always thought there was much more to the story of Eddie Lowery than there was. I won't ever believe he shot and killed himself!

Yes Waddell was the name. I don't remember much of the details but seems like it went on for a few days. Also was thinking there were hostages involved.

In his The History of Randolph County Lawrence Dalton makes the statement that no lawman had lost his life in the performance of his duties in Randolph County. However, by the time of his writing, several lawmen had died, one result of the perpetrator. That killing and others have already been discussed in this forum. One killing not mentioned was the murder of town marshal Manley Jackson. The details of his murder are revealed in The Autobiography of Alvin Karpis. Karpis was a member of the infamous Ma Barker Gang. One night the gang was in Pocahontas when they noticed Jackson writing down their license plate number, since they were strangers in town. They kidnapped him at gunpoint and drove him several miles out of town where, according to Karpis, Freddy Barker shot Jackson with a .45. His body was left at the side of the road where it was discovered by a family traveling to Pocahontas. The details of what happened next are not well-known to me but from what I remember, a man named Dame was arrested and accused of the murder. Her was interrogated by the police until they managed to sweat a confession from him. He was sentenced to prisons but I don't recall where or for how long.

You can just shut the hell up! Maybe if Scott wasn't messing around with Dwight wife then maybe Scott would still be here.

Yes he was one of the best. He was my Uncle (my Dads Brother). He was shot and killed by a sniper (Eddie Lowrey). I don't think we will ever know what really happened that night.
