Lieutenant Faircloth and Patrolman Mahlon Parks were killed in an automobile accident during a high speed pursuit of a bootlegging suspect. Their vehicle struck an embankment near the Stevens Mill Bridge and then crashed into the water. The suspect they were chasing was charged with manslaughter but the charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence.

Lieutenant Faircloth had been with the agency for 18 years.

I remember my mother telling me the story of how uncle Frank died. He was her brother and she spoke highly of him. He died two years and one day before I was born. My sister remembers my dad coming home to tell my mother of uncle Franks passing, it was a sad time I'm sure. I saw his name at the bridge on Wayne Memorial just the other day. I was proud. All but one of the Faircloth brothers and sisters have passed away now but I know they were proud of their brother and his service to our community.
