Pat, tried to email personally but my email came back as an "error"
According to the information I recieved: " September 6, 1933, warrants were issued for the arrest of Adam Justus and his four
sons, Boyd,Zeb,Walter, and Matt. They were indited by grand jury
November 16, 1933. April 23, 1934 they were found not guilty and let go for lack of evidence. Matt supposely did the shootings".

Please let me know if you find anything else on this or if you find
the Facemire author of this story. My line is Collins. The two men killed with the sheriff were Hiram and Walter Collins of Birch River,WV. They were from the Edward Collins Line. Edward Collins married Anna Justice so the two families were related. Edward was the brother of my John W. Collins.
