    Do you have information on the shooting deaths of Eb Badley and Etta Creekmore in 1922? I have reviewed the court records. It is not clear whether anyone was ever convicted for the shooting. It appears charges were filed, but I can’t find anything confirming a conviction or finding of not guilty.
