Marshal Robert Blassingame succumbed to a gunshot wound sustained three weeks earlier when he was attached on a railroad platform.

Two men approached him and asked him what time a train was due to arrive. One of the men then grabbed him from behind and produced a handgun. Marshal Blassingame was able to break free and pulled his own gun, but was shot in the stomach.

Marshal Blassingame had served with the agency for 9 years. He was survived by his wife and child.
