Deputy Sheriff Bob Napier was believed to have been shot and killed after confronting a subject near his home at Walker's Branch.

His mangled body was located on a set of nearby railroad tracks. Evidence showed that his body had been dragged to the tracks and his revolver had been fired four times. A subject was arrested and charged with his murder in 1935, 13 years after his death.

Deputy Napier was survived by his wife and several young children.

I worked with one of your sons, gave me my first job about 30 years ago. He was a fine man, and took me under his wing and made me who I am today. He is with you now.
