Deputy Sheriff Harvey White was shot and mortally wounded near Boston as he and three deputies attempted to arrest a man on a charge of burglary. As the officers entered the man's home he shot Deputy White in the side, the bullet entering his liver. The other deputies rushed Deputy White to a hospital in Boston where he died later that night.

The suspect was apprehended a week later in Abbeville, Alabama. On November 7th, 1931, he was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. His sentence was later commuted to life.

Deputy White was survived by his wife and three children. He had previously server as a special officer for the Seaboard Railroad and with the Glynn County Police.
