Conklin..a black sheep!

Am seeking information on a John R. Conklin, known to have been in Woodward Co. as of 1921.
We have a letter from an attorney seeking money from John's family for his defense. It seems as if John shot a Mr. Powell, probably in the winter or spring of 1921.
Anyone in Woodward Co. who could look in the local newspapers? Am willing to pay a search fee.
The letter from the attorney, Mr W.H. Springfield, reads in part........
"Answering your of May 24 (1921), in reference to your brother J.R. Conklin....
I am certain from my investigation that your brother was laboring under emotional insanity when he shot Powell."
Death certificate search revealed nothing in Woodward Co. on him.
