Justlco Crutchlleld learned that Mr.
Deputy had been kllled ln Henrico

Henrico county authorltles. Burwell
and Jordan were taken to the Henrico
County Jail, where each was later
halled. Thomas Gresham went on tne

Statements as to the cause of tihe
accldent vary ln several partlculars,

was from the rear.- either as the re

nre agreed that the two cars did not
