Enticed To His Death

Thomas W. Davis and Jesse Taylor of Sinking Creek, were put in jail at
Barbourville, Kentucky, Sunday night for murdering Len Hammicker,
Saturday night. They induced Hammicker to leave his house and accompany
them to see some girls. Hammicker was found dead, so badly battered in the
head that his remains could not be recognized. One of the prisoners has confessed.
