Constable Sam Robertson was shot and killed while raiding a poker game in Wolf Township. After arriving at the location he informed everyone there to report to him the following day, instead of arresting them that night.

While talking to the men the game's lookout guard returned to the home and observed Constable Robertson. He immediately opened fire, fatally wounding the constable.

The suspect was later arrested. He plead guilty to murder and was sentenced to life in prison.

Constable Robertson was survived by his wife and eight children.

Constable Robertson, tomorrow marks the 87th anniversary of your murder. It's apparent that your family not only has kept you in their hearts, but that they are better people because of you, even though they never met you.

It is clear you were a good and honorable man and a true hero.

God Bless and Rest in Peace, Brother.
