It appears the state of Kentucky shot men to prevent them from lynching a “Negro” on Feb. 9, 1920, according to reports from the Naugatuck Daily News. Maybe someone that lives in Kentucky would be interested in researching this one, because court records, if there are any, are much, much less expensive if you can visit in person. The trial was only 15 minutes, if I understand correctly, so there might not be much of a record at all anyway.
