Court Opinion by Commissioner Berryman Henwood for Case No. 30588: State of Missouri, Respondent, vs. Maurice W. Nagle, Appellant. After considering Nagle's appeal, Henwood reverses the initial judgment finding Nagle guilty of killing traffic officer James H. Smith on June 14, 1928 after Messino and six other men stole $19,000 from Home Trust Company at 1117-19 Walnut Street, Kansas City, Missouri. Henwood discharges Nagle because the commissioner states that there is no evidence that Nagle participated in the murder or robbery.
