Constable Eanes was shot and killed while he and a posse chased a man who had just taken his child from his estranged wife and was firing his gun in the air. The posse had chased the man from Granger for several miles, the entire time exchanging shots with him. The suspect finally got off of his buggy and continued firing his Winchester rifle. Constable Eanes was struck in the face and killed. The suspect fled to Salado where he left the child with relatives and fled into the brush. He was eventually arrested and sentenced to six years in jail for Constable Eanes' murder.

Constable Eanes had been elected constable on November 2, 1886, and re-elected on November 6, 1888. He was survived by his wife. He was buried in Granger, Williamson County, but no grave site has been located.
