I'm doing some genealogical research on my wife's family. Louis W Carroll (the death certificate reflects "Lewis" as his first name) was born 8/13/1898 in Lincolnton NC and died of a "revolver wound of head - homicide" (according to the death certificate) on 9/29/1929 in Lincolnton. His wife's name was Nellie Mae (nee Gibson).
I'm trying to find the details of his murder. The county Sheriff couldn't help me. I've written to the local Sheriff as well, but suspect I'll have similar success there as well.
Can anyone point me in some direction to find out where, who and why for curiosity?
