Constable Thomas Stagg and Deputy Sheriff Edward Dawes (of Evanston, Wyoming) were shot and killed while attempting to arrest two horse thieves. The thieves were surrounded in a cabin during the night. The following morning, a gun battle erupted in which Constable Stagg and the civilian posse member were killed.

The two thieves were captured six days later, tried and convicted. The shooter was executed. One of the rifles in the firing squad had been used by the suspect to kill the Constable Stagg and the posse member. The second suspect was sentenced to prison.

Constable Stagg had also served as Echo City Marshal and was survived by his wife and grown children. Officer Stagg is buried in Echo Cemetery, Summit County, Utah.
