James L. Nealy

Constable Nealy succumbed to gunshot wounds received several days earlier when two men opened fire while he and several officers conducted a raid on an illegal moonshine still. One suspect was shot and arrested at the scene. The other suspect was arrested several days later.

Both suspects were acquitted after evidence was introduced which showed that Constable Nealy could have been accidentally shot by a fellow officer.

Constable Nealy had been with the agency for 13 months.
