ARREST DESERTER IN SLAYING OF OFFICER
CLINTON. Tenn. —(UP)— Addison Jackson. 19 year old hill-billy
who "resigned" from the army, and his mother, Cora, are to be charged with
murder of a deputy sheriff who tried to arrest him as a deserter,
authorities said today. Jackson was arrested at the home of a kinsman
near here last night after he, his mother and grandmother fled their home in
Briceville, Tenn., where Deputy Sheriff Reuben Fox was slain with his own
gun. The rings of Fox's handcuffs were still on Jackson's wrists.
Their connecting lock had been severed with a file. The grandmother, Mrs.
Pearl White, was found in the LaFollette Hospital with a bullet wound
in her hip. Her grandson shot her by accident.
