They had been arrested the night before on charges of robbing and murdering a white factory worker and raping his girlfriend. A large crowd broke into the jail with sledgehammers, beat the men, and hanged them. Police officers in the crowd cooperated in the lynching. A third person, 16-year-old [[James Cameron (activist)|James Cameron]], escaped lynching due to the intervention of an unidentified member of the crowd who announced that he had nothing to do with the rape or murder.<ref>The primary source for these events is ''A Time of Terror'', which is an eyewitness account. Relevant passages are quoted in several of the external links, including [http://withoutsanctuary.org/pics_27_text.html photo notes from ''Without Sanctuary''] and [http://www.legendsofamerica.com/LA-Lynching9.html ''Legends of America'']. Other accounts are in ''Lynching in the Heartland'', listed in the Further reading section, above.</ref> A studio photographer, [[Lawrence Beitler]], took a photograph of the dead bodies hanging from a tree surrounded by a large crowd; thousands of copies of the photograph were sold. The event is notable as the last confirmed lynching of blacks in the [[Northern United States]].<ref>"[[Lawrence Beitler]], a studio photographer, took this photo. For ten days and nights he printed thousands of copies, which sold for fifty cents apiece." from ''A Time of Terror'', quoted in ''Legends of America'', see previous note. See also ''Lynching in the Heartland'', chapter 6 which discusses the photograph in detail.</ref><ref>According to the account in ''A Time of Terror''. This is disputed by Madison, in ''Lynching in the Heartland'' (on pp 41-42), but supported by the notes to photo 32 in ''Without Sanctuary''. Madison's position is also disputed by the Monroe H. Little review of the Madison book. Cynthia Carr, author of [http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0517705060/ Our Town: A Heartland Lynching, a Haunted Town, and the Hidden History of White America] discovered advertisements for local klan gatherings in Marion newspapers from 1930 during her research for the book, and interviewed subjects that believed the klan was still active at the time of the lynching.</ref>
