Deputy Sheriff John Altrip was shot and killed while attempting to take a pistol away from a man who was attending a corn-husking party near Hindman.

Several men were arrested and charged in connection with the murder. Just before their trial started in June 1892 someone attempted to burn down the county courthouse in order to destroy the case records.
