Pendleton, Virgil
Virgil Pendleton, 37 years old and unmarried, died at the Danville and Boyle county hospital Tuesday night (Nov. 11, 1925) from the effects of a gun shot wound, said to have been inflicted by Wilburn East on the Poor Ridge pike last Sunday afternoon. Sheriff Robinson and his deputies are still searching the county for East, who seems to have slipped the officers. Pendleton was shot in the left side, the ball entering the body about three inches below the heart and lodged near the spine. Dr. Virgil Kinnaird who took Pendleton to Danville, performed the operation early Monday morning in an effort to save Pendleton’s life.
According to Pendleton he was riding his horse down the road toward the home of a neighbor whom he wanted to take a truck load of hogs to Danville, when he met East, who was on foot. East asked Pendleton where he was going and the latter replied, “None of your business,” he said. East then said, “I‘ll show you if its none of my business,” and, according to Pendleton, drew a pistol and fired. Pendleton said East would have fired again, had he not begged him not to shoot. Pendleton stayed on his horse until he reached the home of Harrison Ray, from which place he was brought ot Lancaster by Dr. Virgil Kinnard. Pendleton is survived by several brothers, all of this county and one sister who resides in Louisville. Funeral arrangements had not been made when we went to press.
