Court Opinion by Judge George R. Ellison for Criminal Case No. 34750: State of Missouri vs. John Gadwood, Appellant. Upon reviewing the assignments of error in Gadwood's motion for a new trial, Ellison affirms that Gadwood was guilty of murdering Lee Flacy on March 27, 1934. The alleged murder occurred "during a city election in Kansas City at a restaurant located at 5824 Swope Parkway, two doors from the polling place for the 25th precinct of the 16th ward." Gadwood was the "rabbit" faction ward leader and Flacy was a "goat" faction precinct captain.
