Edward E. Hogle

Deputy Edward Hogle was shot and killed as he rode with a posse who were tracking a group of Indians suspected of murdering four ranchers in Washoe County.

The posse located the Indians near Golconda, about forty miles east of Winnemucca. A prolonged shootout ensued in which Deputy Hogle and eight of the Indians were killed. Four other Indians were taken into custody. It is believed that three of the suspects died of disease and one died later of other causes.

Deputy Hogle had been deputized by the superintendent of the Nevada State Police, in Eagleville, who was in charge of the posse. He was survived by his mother and fiancee. He is reported to be buried at the Anderson District Cemetery in Anderson, California.

To Policeman Hogle family, my name is Justin Reck and I am a police officer with the University of Pittsburgh Police Department. I recently completed a 3 day Law Enforcement United bicycle ride from Reading, Pa to Washington D.C. Prior to beginning the 200 mile bicycle journey to D.C., I received a bracelet in honor and memory of Deputy Edward Hogle. It was an honor to ride in memory of Deputy Hogle. A little background of Law Enforcement United: Law Enforcement United was founded upon and committed to honoring officers who have died in the line of duty, and ensures that their surviving family is supported and not forgotten. The fundraising efforts support The Road to Hope, Concerns of Police Survivors, and the Officer Down Memorial. If anyone from the Hogle family views this message, I would love to connect with them. Thanks for your service and God bless.
