In Memoriam

Wayne Barry
Died May 23, 1929

On May 23, 1929 Detective Wayne Barry and another detectives were assigned to a moonshine liquor investigation in the area of Merrill Avenue (now Arlington Avenue North). While the detectives were conducting a stakeout to observe an expected delivery of contraband, a burglar broke into a nearby home and shot the resident. The detectives heard the shot and saw the suspect run from the rear of the house. While they were pursuing him on foot, the man shot and killed Barry.
