George W. Tucker

Constable George Tucker was shot and killed as he attempted to arrest a man for the fraudulent sale of a mule.

The suspect was apprehended, convicted of murder, and sentenced to death. On March 17th, 1913, the day he was to hang, Governor Oscar B. Colquitt granted him a respite of 30 days. A mob, angered over the respite, seized the suspect from the county jail and hanged him.

Constable Tucker was survived by his wife and young son and buried at Omaha Cemetery, Morris County, Texas.
