The great nephew of Officer Hagler, Jack Davis of Monett Mo., has possession of Officer Hagler's badge. I have examined it and found no number on it or name, but there is every reason to believe the badge is authentic. I have photographed it and would gladly submit the photo for your archive. I am the local newspaper editor who has written about the Hagler case on several occasions.
