01/05/28 McCOLLUM JULIUS 1916 12 29 1927 Unknown 11 YEAR OLD BOY KILLED FOR $20: Officers are searching four states for Elbert Thomas, wanted in St.Francis county to answer the charge of murder and robbery. Thomas is charged with killing Julius McCollum, 11 year old son of Mr.and Mrs.B.McCollum, near Chatfield. Mr.McCollum operates the store known as Mack's place at the junction of road 50 and the road that leads to Hughes. Last Thursday he sent his son from the store to his residence, with about $20.00 hidden in his boots. He was seen alive with Elbert Thomas and Grady Swain, negro youths 19 and 16. The following morning, after an all-night search for the body of the boy, his body was found in a bayou. A search found Swain who accuses Thomas of the murder, but it is stated that he admits to being an accomplice. Swain claims that Thomas held McCollum's head under water until he was drowned, then he robbed him. 1/12/28-The body of Elbert Thomas was found floating in the bayou where the McCollum youth lost his life. Officers are now operating on theory that it was Swain, not Thomas, drowned the two. Swain has confessed to naming another as an accomplice, Robert Bell, both are in Little Rock for safe keeping. 03/22/28 Slayers convicted, Robert Bell and Grady Swain, by Grand Jury in Circuit Court. 03/29/28 Jury returns verdict of murder in the first degree this morning, likely to be put to death in the electric chair. 04/05/28 Judge R.J.Williams on Monday sentenced the two to the electric chair on June 15. 04/19/28 Judge W.J.Lanier will appeal the sentence to the Arkansas Supreme Court as he contends the youth met his death by accidental drowning, and confessions were not voluntary by the youths.

The deceased, so the Times-Herald is informed, was recovering from an attack of flu, and on Wednesday morning when he saw the mail man coming, called to his wife, who was in the kitchen with the remark, "Believe I'll get up and put on my pants and read the paper." A short time later, Mrs.Hodges heard an unusual noise in the living room, and to her horror, when she looked, discovered that her husband had fallen face-foremost into the fireplace where he had already been burned beyond recognition. Mrs.Hodges screamed and attempted to rescue her husband, burning her hands severely in her efforts to knock out the fire. It seems that the family wished to rush him to the hospital, but the sufferer refused, that as he was soon to go, he wished to die at home, surrounded by family and friends. Mr.Hodges passed away on Friday, Jan.6,1928, and his remains were laid to rest in the old Yocona (Hodges) cemetery on Saturday. He had twice been married, and is survived by Abner C., a son by the first marriage and by his second wife and a large family of children of this union.
