Special Agent Bob Crockett was shot and killed aboard a Guyandotte Valley Railroad excursion train near Big Ugly, West Virginia.

A Lincoln County constable had arrested a drunk man for attempting to shoot a newsboy and a justice of the peace who was aboard the train started a trial for the defendant. During the trial the suspect pulled out a knife, but was disarmed by Special Agent Crockett. Moments later someone turned the lights out in the train car and the suspect opened fire, killing Special Agent Crockett.

The suspect was able to jump from the train car and fled into the mountains.

Special Agent Crockett was survived by his parents and two siblings.

Rest in Peace Special Agent Robert Henry Crockett. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting America's steel roadways.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever pursued your murderer until his end days. May they forever gnaw at his rotting carcass while the flames of hell scorch his soul!

Amen.
