Ripley County Democrat (Doniphan, Mo) Dec. 29, 1905 Pg4

KILLED A MISSOURI GIANT

Columbia, Mo., Dec. 27--- A stone no larger than a walnut, thrown by Henry Jonas, an 18-year-old boy, caused the almost instant death of Mitchell Shadrick, a farm hand known as the Boone County Giant. Jonas lives four miles west of Columbia.

Shadrick had had trouble with the Jonas family, and Christmas day the trouble terminated in an encounter between the victim and the Jonas brothers, as well as several other farm hands.

It is claimed that Shadrick struck at one of the brothers, H.A. Jonas, across the top of a fence, and that Henry Jonas took up the fight in behalf of his brother. Jonas picked up a small stone and threw it at Shadrick. The latter turned his head to dodge the missile, but it struck him behind the left ear.

The giant whirled about, threw up his hands and fell to the ground. He tried to rise and get at his slayer, but fell back and was dead within an hour. The stone left no visible wound and the death of the victim seems almost unaccountable.

No coffin could be found in Columbia long enough to contain the body of the dead man, and it was necessary for a casket to be made to order.
The victim was considered to be the most powerful man in this section of the state and his death from a stone thrown by a boy is referred to as the David and Goliath combat up to date.

Blood hounds were set on the trail but the guilty ones have not yet been caught.
