Deputy Game Warden John Hollowell died after being assaulted by two cousins, ages 18 and 20, outside the Chowan County Court House in Edenton.

Deputy Game Warden Hollowell had just testified against them after charging them with fishing violations. Doctors testified that during the assault Deputy Game Warden Hollowell fell and hit his head on the pavement causing his death.

Both suspects were convicted of manslaughter. One was sentenced to 10 to 15 years and the other to 7 to 12 years in prison. Governor Oliver M. Gardner pardoned them both on December 25, 1932.

Warden Hollowell had served with the agency for one year. He was survived by his wife.
