Bunnell, Florida
February 24, 1921

For the first time in the history of the county a white man has been tried by his peers on a charge of murder.

Dozier Forsyth is dead as the result of a quarrel, apparently of his own making, with J T Anglin, locomotive engineer for the Dupont Land Company, charged with the crime and acquitted on the grounds of self defense.

......Mrs. Walter Cody was a disinterested eye witness....other witnesses were Marion Forsyth, brother of the dead man and Archie Anglin, son of J T Anglin......

.....The row started when Mr. Forsyth same up to where she (Mrs. Walter Cody) were in conservation at the Dupont Depot at about 6:30 Sunday evening (Mrs. Cody lived with her husband and child over the depot, her husband was the agent and telegraph operator).... He took a pistol from his pocket and placed it the stomach of Anglin; Anglin asked him to remove it.......Marion Forsyth took Anglin's right wrist and told him not to put his hand on the gun........young Anglin then came up to Marion and told him that they could fight it out......the two boys, neither over 21, began fighting......Anglin knocked Dozier's revolver up in the air, drew his own and fired three shots.....

The jury found the Dozier Forsyth came to death by gunshot wounds from a revolver held in the hands of J T Anglin, and that said J T Anglin did fire said revolver in self-defense - so say we all.

Members of the coroner's jury were: D D Deen, chairman, members, Z E Booe, W H Folk, L S Cody, C B Miller and C E Pellicer
