Deputy J.R. Lindsay


On Sunday, Nov. 14, 1926, Lindsay was trailing some robbers when he stopped in Meeker and began talking to Lincoln County Deputy Sheriff Dan M. Fuller, who was demonstrating how he drew his gun when some men tried to rob him recently. The hammer of Fuller's gun caught on his key chain causing the gun to fire. The bullet fatally wounded Lindsay and Fuller was charged with manslaughter.
