Deputy Marshal George Leihy was killed in Bell's Canyon while returning from Prescott, Arizona, to La Paz, Arizona.

Deputy Leihy was the Indian Agent at La Paz and was warned he had offended some of his charges and should be on his guard. He disregarded his advisers and would go about the country alone and unarmed. During a return trip from Prescott, about ten miles below Skull Valley where the road passes through Bell's Canyon, Marshal Leihy and his lone companion were waylaid and killed.
