Seventy-Five Years Ago, A Murder

Seventy-five years ago, a state trooper was shot and killed during a bank robbery in Fork Union, VA. It happened at the Fluvanna County Bank. The bank job was done by three men; Spoon, Daugherty, and Mills. John Daugherty received the death penalty for the shooting. The trooper's name was Thompson.

The assistant bank teller at the time of the robbery and killing was Iva Loving White. She died in 1982, forty-six years after she witnessed this murder. She was my grandmother.
