Police Officer Clarence Eaton was shot and killed while attempting to breakup a fight at a dance at a farm known as Heslep's Grove.

Several juveniles and young men had started fighting and Officer Eaton, who was off duty and attending the dance with his wife, had broken up the fight and told the subjects to be peaceful. A short time later the subjects began fighting again and one of the brothers of a juvenile ran to the location and immediately shot Officer Eaton, killing him.

The subject was arrested and charged with Policeman Eaton's murder.

Officer Eaton was survived by his wife.
