Both suspects were arrested and convicted of two counts of murder. One was executed in the electric chair on November 22, 1912. The other was sentenced to life. He was paroled on November 24, 1926.

Constable Heath had been appointed to the position of District 6 constable only five months earlier.

My great-grandfather. I knew your sons and daughters as great aunts and uncles, and of course my grandmother Anna H. Gibson. May your service and sacrifice always be remembered.
