Detective Correll was shot and killed while he and his partner searched a home for stolen goods. The suspect was later apprehended near Greer, South Carolina. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to 25 to 30 years. On August 19, 1931, he escaped from a prison farm in Wake County. Six days later he was shot in the leg and captured by a posse near Greer, South Carolina, after he and another escapee attacked a man and robbed him of his money.

I never got to meet you granddaddy because you were gone too soon. But just knowing daddy followed in your footsteps makes me so proud of both of you. Daddy is gone and both of you are in Heaven and I am just so proud of both of you. God bless all the fallen officers and their families. Love you granddaddy even though I never met you.
