Legendary Tilghman Goes Down

There’s a fine line between catching an outlaw and becoming one. Based on the research of Glenn Shirley and Nancy B. Samuelson. Most of his friends think Bill Tilghman has earned the right to retire from enforcing the law after a 54-year career, but, at the age of 71, Tilghman, known to his friends as “Uncle Billy,” accepted the job as chief of police in the oil boomtown of Cromwell, Oklahoma. Up until Bill signed on, the town was out of control with no law in force with wall-to-wall brothels and illegal booze everywhere. On the night of November 1, Police Chief Tilghman is in “Pop” Murphy’s Cromwell Dance Hall with a friend and Deputy Hugh Sawyer. All three notice a vehicle that haphazardly pulls up to the curb in front of the dance hall. The driver stumbles out, clearly intoxicated, and discharges his pistol in the street. In the car are two women, who turn out to be known prostitutes and a companion, a U.S. Army sergeant named Thompson. Tilghman quickly gets up and goes outside. He and deputy Deputy Sawyer confront the drunk, and Tilghman grabs his pistol away. The drunk quickly produces another pistol hidden on his person and shoots Tilghman in the stomach and chest at close range. Tilghman slumps over and falls into the street. In the confusion, Wiley Lynn flees the scene and turns himself in at the Federal District Headquarters in Holdenville, Oklahoma, pleading self-defense.
