St. Louis Globe Democrat, St. Louis, Missouri, Friday, February 20, 1880
Caddo, I.T., February 19- A desperado named David Folsom left Denison in the evening with eight quarts of whisky, and, arriving here drunk and boisterous, was ordered by Deputy United States Marshals Ayers and Stephens (sic/Stephenson?) to surrender. Folsom resisted, and the only reply to the command of the officers was a shot from his revolver, but he missed and the officers shot him in the leg and body fatally. He died shortly after.
Thanks to an asute reader, April G., I now have the findings of the grand jury:
At a regular term of Circuit Court held in Blue County, Chuhla Tamaha C. N.
March Term 1880
We the grand jurors duly empanelled ___ and sworn to inquire in and for the body of the County of Blue for all violation of law, do find that two U. S. Deputy Marshalls by the names of Stephenson and C. C. Ayers, who did on the evening of the 11th day of February 1880 between 8 and 9 o’clock p.m. purposely, willfully and wickedly shoot one David Folsom with pistols in the town of Caddo and wound him in three places to wit: one bullet had entered the right side of his neck and passing near the right jaw bone in out; another bullet had entered the right arm and passing into his right side cutting the right lobe of the lungs and lodging near the back bone and under his shoulder blade; and the third bullet had broken one of his legs just below the knee. We find that David Folsom had died from the wounds made in his neck and his side as aforesaid between 2 and 3 o’clock a. m. the 18th day of February 1880. From all the evidence before the grand jurors it appears clear that said David Folsom was not killed on account of resisting arrest or any legal process, that he must have been murdered in cold blood.

Note: A listing of U.S. Marshals for the time period shows three by the name of Stephenson. However, there is only one Marshal Ayers: Christopher C. Ayers. I have not yet found a record of their punishment or incarceration for the murder.
