Wayne County Journal May 15, 1902

Sam Brown Sentenced To Death, Execution Set For June 13, 1902

Sam Brown who was convicted in August in our circuit court in 1901 for murder in the first degree for killing George T Richardson, will suffer the penalty of death by hanging here on the 13th day of next month.
The case was a clear one of murder for money, and has caused great excitement ever since the heinous crime was committed on March 20, 1900.
Brown, his brother-in-law Will Grant, and Richardson all made ties for the H.K.L & L. railroad company over in the eastern part of this county near Hiram. By some means Brown learned that Richardson had $700 and that he kept it in a leather belt next to his person around his waist so he induced Grant, who was living with him at the time, to assist in killing Richardson, get his money, and put out the report that Richardson had suddenly left for Klondike.
Brown and Grant quit work late one afternoon and started for Hiram to draw their pay and on the way they halted and waited till Richardson came up, who was returning from Hiram where he'd been to get his pay for making ties.
Brown told Grant, when they met, to go onto Hiram and he'd go back with the old man. After he turned back, with Richardson walking along behind him talking in a friendly manner, he took the Winchester which he was carrying, off his shoulder and shot Richardson 2 or 3 times, then dragged him by the heels into an old vacant tie shanty, piled chips, dead wood, and pine knots on the corpse and set fire to the shanty. He and Grant then went home, and came back next morning to find the body not consumed but with the head and limbs burned off. Brown then carried the remains across the road and down into another hollow and deposited it in a hole left by an upturned tree, again piling dead wood on it and setting it afire. It was here that charred remains were found by a posse who missed Richardson and suspected foul play. Brown and Grant were arrested and Grant turned State's evidence and is now free.
This is the blackest crime and darkest spot in the history of Wayne County. Brown has yet made no confession but is reported to have said that if he is executed, he desire to be hanged 15 minutes before 12 o'clock so he can get to hell in time for lunch.

Kansas City Times September 4, 1894

Murdered By A Prisoner

Carrollton, Missouri---The most cold blooded murder that was ever known in Carroll County occurred today 16 miles northwest of here. Hurley Goin shot and killed Constable William Hall of Hill Township. Goin stole a horse from a farmer in northwest Carroll a few days ago and was arrested in Chillicothe by the sheriff of Livingston County. He was brought to this county and turned over to Constable Hall. Today while Hall was preparing the papers committing Goin to the county jail, he laid his revolver on the desk, Goin grabbed it and shot Hall in the neck, killing him instantly. Goin then attempted to shoot Hall's father, but was prevented by justice Runyan, who grabbed the revolver out of Goin's hand. Goin then ran and was shot at 4 times by Runyan. One shot took effect in his hand. Goin escaped to the timber. A posse was quickly organized and at 1 o'clock he was captured. With difficulty he was taken from the infuriated people and brought to jail at this place. It may be that a lynching will yet take place.
