Fatal Incident Summary
Offender: No Info
Location: CA   USA   Wed. Mar. 13, 1907
Summary: Deputy Price was stabbed in the throat after a prisoner overpowered him. Deputy Price had arrested the prisoner for stealing a buggy and a horse and had arrested him near Squaw Valley, California. During the arrest the suspect attempted to shoot Deputy Price but his gun misfired several times and he was taken into custody. Because Deputy Price had no handcuffs he used rope to restrain the suspect.

During the ride back to town the suspect complained that he was hungry so they stopped to eat. When they were finished and began heading back to town Deputy Price did not restrain the suspect again. Deputy Price's body was found with a stab wound in the neck a short time later. The suspect fled the scene and was never apprehended. The suspect was also the prime suspect in the murder of Officer Harry Van Meter, of the Fresno Police Department, three weeks earlier.

Deputy Price had served in law enforcement for 4 years and had only been with the sheriff's department for 2 months. He was killed on this 32nd birthday. He was survived by his mother, brother, and sister.p
