He was Killed way back in I think January 1964 or 1965 in Evans at the home of my birth mother Francis June (Harris). Hood She had gotten a Peace Bond out on him because he drank and they were separated at the time. We were visiting her and Richard wanted to see my baby, she wouldn't let him in, so he busted in the door and she shot him as he came through the door.
