Clyde L. Hauver

Chief Deputy Clyde Hauver was shot and killed while conducting a raid on a large still in the Catoctin Mountains, near the present location of the Camp David Presidential Retreat.

As Chief Deputy Hauver and his posse approached the still they were fired upon and engaged in a long gun battle. Although Chief Deputy Hauver was mortally wounded, the rest of the posse was eventually able to make it to the site where they destroyed the still and several thousand gallons of moonshine.

The suspect was arrested in Adams County, Pennsylvania, and charged with Chief Deputy Hauver's murder.
