Deputy Sheriff Hugh Craft was assassinated because of his previous work as a federal prohibition agent.

Deputy Craft was driving from his farm in Gurley, Alabama, to Huntsville when he was ambushed and shot in the face with a shotgun. The suspects then shot him in the head with a pistol before fleeing.

Deputy Craft had recently retired as a federal prohibition agent before being appointed a deputy sheriff in Madison County. He had previously served as the chief of police of the Gurley Police Department. He was survived by his wife, son, and daughter.
