Deputy Game Warden Robert Marshall was shot and killed by a moonshiner while searching for a game violator on a farm in Preble County.

Deputy Marshall and the Camden marshal were searching the area together but were out of eye-sight. As Game Warden Marshall approached the site of a still, he was ambushed by one of the moonshiners. He was struck in the chest by a shotgun blast and killed instantly.

The Camden marshal rushed to his location and observed the suspect fleeing and make his escape. The suspect was indicted for first degree murder but was able to evade a large posse.

Game Warden Marshall had served with the agency for 10 years and was survived by his wife. He is buried in Section 8, Fairmont Cemetery, Camden, Preble County, Ohio.
