Deputy McConnell succumbed to gunshot wounds received the previous day while attempting to arrest two bootleggers. Both suspects escaped.

In 1931 police discovered that one of the suspects had died in a Los Angeles, California, hospital of a stroke a few days before the discovery. The other suspect was captured in Albany, Missouri, June 25, 1941. He convinced the jury that his dead accomplice killed Deputy McConnell and was acquitted.
