Special Policeman Philip Goins suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after he and another officer arrested a man for disorderly conduct.

He and the other officer were assigned to a polling location during the Democratic Primary election. They arrested the man and walked him to the work house to be confined. As they returned to their post the other officer suggested they stop for a drink of water.

Because they were close to Policeman Goins' home they stopped there for the water. As they were preparing to leave Policeman Goins suddenly collapsed. A doctor was sent for but Policeman Goins passed away before he arrived.

Policeman Goins had served with the Frankfort Fire Department and as a special policeman for the Frankfort Police Department for several years. He was survived by his wife and seven children.
