Patrolman Ford succumbed to gunshot wounds sustained 11 days earlier after he responded to investigate reports of a woman screaming in a home on North Street. When he arrived at the home he discovered a man attempting to rape the woman. When Patrolman Ford tried to take the man into custody the man grabbed a handgun from a night table and shot him.

The suspect was convicted of Patrolman Ford's murder and executed at Auburn Prison on December 10, 1913.

Patrolman Ford was survived by his wife and niece.
