Jack Hunter

Deputy Sheriff Jack Hunter was shot and killed by an inmate during an escape attempt from the county jail.

The suspect, who was being held for officials in Seattle, Washington, on charges of forgery, bigamy, and draft dodging, had a pistol slipped to him by a friend. Deputy Hunter was picking up dirty dishes from the inmates when the man produced the hidden gun and shot him. The suspect escaped and fled to Alma, Arkansas, where he was shot and killed by the McIntosh County sheriff and his deputy three weeks later.

Deputy Hunter had served with the McIntosh County Sheriff's Office for 10 years. He was survived by his wife and three children.
