Am hoping that there is someone out there with an old clipping of the murder of Chief of Police Martin Posey, in Feb. of 1935. My ggg Uncle, Frank Dotson who was with the Police Dept., was seriously wounded in the attack. From what info I have been able to piece together, while Chief Posey was releasing one inmate, another stabbed him fatally. I and other Dotson researchers would appreciate any information that we can get. Thanks in advance.
