Santa Fe Railroad Special Agent Antiqued Brass Badge

Agent McClure was shot and killed while attempting to arrest several men for stealing corn from a train. He and his partner had boarded the train at Belen in an attempt to stop any theft from occurring in Abo Pass. His partner had gotten off the train at a flag stop and Agent McClure continued on. When Agent McClure failed to return to the station a search was undertaken. His body was found three days later in a well suffering four bullet wounds. (Excerpt from Officer Down Memorial Page regarding Special Agent J.A. McClure)
