Apr 23, 1920 - Poison Liquor Kills Two Men
Prosecuting attorney, Jno. C. Ashley was called to Hardy, Monday to
make an investigation concerning the source of a supply of a liquid supposed
to induce intoxication that was instrumental in causing the death of two
citizens of that place on Sunday, Last.
Sunday morning, Reece Taylor who resides four miles from Hardy drank a
quantity of moonshine and in a short time became unconscious and died.
Sunday afternoon Owen Billingsley, son of Jim C. Billingsley, who formerly
resided at Franklin, in this county, drank something that produced
intoxication, soon became unconscious and died.
It is thought that the whiskey was made in a zinc vessel and the death of
Taylor was caused from zinc poisoning.
