“Where’s your whiskey, Warren?” shouted Tom Kersey as he hammered on the door of Warren Walters’ home in Hazlehurst, Georgia. Kersey hadn’t come for a drink – he was the town marshal searching for illegal liquor during the Prohibition period, and he was convinced that Walters had a cache hidden in his home.

He must have been right, for Walters was clearly very drunk and refused to let him in. When the marshal decided to force the door Walters opened fire with his shotgun and Tom Kersey’s face was blown apart.

Warren Walters was hanged on Friday, September 19th, 1924, in the Jeff Davis County Prison.
