Deputy William Stiles was shot and killed while serving civil papers to the owner of a ranch 90 miles northwest of Winnemucca, Nevada. The man opened fire on Deputy Stiles, striking him three times, as he walked from the ranch house to the barn. The suspect was charged with Deputy Stiles' murder but acquitted at trial. Deputy Stiles had been a former member of the Arizona Rangers and had been deputized by the Sheriff to serve the court papers.

Deputy Stiles is reportedly buried in an unmarked/unknown grave in Old Pioneer Cemetery, Winnemucca, Humbolt County, Nevada.

Rest in Peace. As I spend the last 22 days of my career serving civil papers and process I can reflect on the dangers that cost you your life.
