Special Agent Dale Kearney was shot and killed as a result of bootlegging investigations he was conducting in Aguilar, Colorado.

He had received a threatening phone call warning him to stay away from certain operations in Trinidad and Aguilar, Colorado. Several days later he received a tip while at home and drove to Aguilar. While there his car overheated and he was forced to seek help from a mechanic. While waiting for a tow truck Agent Kearney was shot and killed by one or more assassins. His body was found with 16 bullet wounds.

No suspects were ever identified.

Agent Kearney was a WWI veteran and had served with the Bureau of Prohibition for 13 months. He was survived by his wife and two small children.
