This Alfred W. Stanhope was a grandson of Alfred Wheeler Stanhope (see Thriller Thursday here) who was shot and killed at the polls, not due to his vote, but was shot by the father of a boy Alfred's son was feuding with. Alfred, the grandson, was shot and killed by a policeman on March 24, 1936 in Louisville, Kentucky and was shot in the back and abdomen. Unfortunately, I've not found anything that explains this tragic and terrible death of a 27-year-old man. Alfred's father, Also Alfred W. Stanhope in a space of 36 years lost his father and son to cops with guns. It's intriguing and maybe someday I will find out why.
