More About This Book

Overview

Several questions remained unanswered after the smoke cleared at the Brookline shootout. At the time, the solutions eluded law authorities, crime buffs, area writers and neighbors who watched it happen. The puzzling aspects still ignite a flame of interst in the curious; drawn to it in their efforts to solve the dormant elements of the worst peace officer massacre in the history of the United States of America.
For instance, how did the Youngs escape? Was it after the confrontation with Frank Pike? He was the only man left alive in the front yard of their mother's farm seven miles southwest of Springfield, Missouri. Out of ten men which included the Greene County Sheriff, the Chief of Detectives, two deputies, five policemen and a civilian, Pike stood alone with an empty gun, while his fellow officers lay dead or dying all around him. To have faced the Youngs, empty handed would have been suicide. He ran for his life to the corner of Hazeltine Road and there he was greeted by Owen Brown, an officer who stayed out of firing range during the entire shootout.
In the thousands who mobbed the scene after the shootout an eighteen year old boy took his 38 Colt, (with his badge in his pocket as an undercover agent for his friend and neighbor, Sheriff Marcell Hendrix) , to help in the search for the Young Brothers. They were wanted for car theft and for the cold-blooded murder of the marshall of Republic, Missouri, two years earlier. Now, it was 1932, and they have shot to death six more officers who attempted to arrest them. The eighteen year old boy was Roy Walker, who said "I was more afraid of the angry mob, than I was of Harry and Jennings Young."
For the next 50 years, Roy relived the story of the shootout and what happened to the sheriff and his men. In the quiet little community where his father, Fred, was born and raised, he saw the horrible aftermath that he could never forget.
How did the Youngs escape from the Brookline area? How did they retrieve their personal belongings left behind in Brooline? How was Crosswhite show while beside the sod cellar? We have tried in "The Brookline Shootout", to answer some of these questions.

For Roy Walker, the family and friends of the slain officers and for those who survived, this story is theirs... a legend in itself.
