John Allen, a  Deputized Civilian with Clark County Sheriff’s Office, was killed Wednesday at Pahcoon Arizona. It is alleged either by Jack Walsh or Floyd Hubbard of both. Jack Walsh's father claims that Hubbard shot Allen and would not allow John Mosby, a neighbor to go near the body.  Allen was left lying in the sun where he fell. Both Jack Walsh and Floyd Hubbard passed through Overton Wednesday headed north.  It is alleged that they killed Allen and then fled. John Mosby reported the killing at Overton last evening and a posse and coroner's jury left for the scene early this morning headed by Deputy Sheriff Joseph Frehner of Mojave County, Arizona, in which the crime was committed.  They will collect what evidence there is and bring back the body. Sheriff Brewer and District Attorney Smith of Mojave County are expected in Overton this afternoon to follow up the case. The murder tale recited in the above dispatch is the bloody sequel of a queer tale.
