Notify Booger Hole Denizens
to Get Out of the
State.
CHARLESTON, \V. Va.. Jan. 29.?
A special grand Jury will be empanelled
at Slay Court House today for
tlio purpose of investigating not only
the murder of Preston Tanner and the
burning of his home at Booger Hole.
Clay county, a little over a week ago.
but also to ascertain. If possible, the
cause of the mysterious deaths of
several other persons in that neighborhood
during the IohI few years.
Drow SampBon. aged 57. and his son.
Howard, aged about 21. are being held
without bond, the former in the Kanawha
county jail at Charleston and
tho latter in the Braxton county Jail
at Suton, charged with the Tanner
murder und the burning of the Tanner
home.
The Booger Hole community has
been tho scene of about a dozen murders,
but because of the fear one class
of citizens there had for the other
class, but little comment wus made
following any of the killings. One of
the most mysterious cases was that of
John Newman, a peddler, who disappeared
while going from one farm ,
house to another one evening. He has
never been heard from and It is the
assumption of the neighborhood that
he was murdered. Joseph Clark was
another victim. He was sleeping in a .
school house. He was traced by a :
streak of blood to a creek nearby, but ,
nothing further was ever leatned about
him. Jlrs. Lacy Ann Boggs was another
victim, her murder having occurred
soon after she had made a remark
that she know where Henry ,
Hargis was buried. Hargls was annthnv
f\t tVio vlr<H?na utlinao rlootVi haa
long been shrouded In mystery. Other ,
murders are spoken about In Clay
county and no one ever has been convicted.
Others aside from the Sampsons are ,
suspected of knowing about the series ,
of murders and a threatening notice
has been pdsted at various places In
the Booger Hole community, which
reads as follows:
We the citizens of Clay county,
seeing that we cannot get justice
by law, have organized the Clay
County Mob. We have pledged
our lives to drive these people
from our country or kill then). It
we cannot catch and hang you.
we shall sneak upon you and kill
you as you killed Henry Hurgis,
Lucy Ann Boggs. the old peddler,
and Treston Tanner.
If before you leave there is any
stealing, killing or burning, we
will get bloodhounds and detectives
and run you to the ends of
the earth. Bill Sampson. Kooch
Sampson. Fred Moore and Aaron
Uunyon are hereby notified to
leave tho stale in 10 days. Rose
Lyons. Bill Moore and Elizabeth
Sampson are notified to leave in
