Deputy Brown Killed; Assailant Shoots Self
AZ Range News - Dec 11, 1969
Cochise County Deputy Sheriff Leroy Brown, 38, was shot to death Saturday and his assailant later died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Sheriff Jim Willson said Brown was shot two or three times by Andres Griego, 20 of Bowie, at a restaurant. Griego was taken to Tucson Medical Center following the slaying, where he was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound to the head. His body was found in a Bowie school yard.
Willson said Griego has threatened Brown and and two other deputies following his arrest in August for disturbing the peace. Griego spent 30 days in jail on the charge, and after being released, went to Superior, AZ. Willson said Griego apparently did not return to Bowie until Saturday.
The Sheriff said Griego entered a restaurant where Brown was, apparently after seeing the deputy sheriff there.
After entering the restaurant, Willson said, Griego ordered a cup of "hot, hot coffee," Griego went over to the table where Brown and another man was seated and threw the coffee in the deputy's face. As Brown got up, Willson said, Griego pulled a .25 caliber automatic from a paper bag and shot the deputy in the face. Willson said Griego shot Brown at least one more time, and may have fired a third shot.
Following the shooting, the Sheriff said Griego fled the restaurant and ran some two blocks to the city's high school where he shot himself.
A coroner's inquest held after the shooting confirmed that the deputy had been shot and killed by Griego.
Deputy Brown is survived by his wife, Clarene “Jackie” Brown, Bowie; two sons: Jeff, 8; and Todd, 4; his father, J.E. Brown, Westville, OK; and his mother, Mrs. Pearl (Jones) Brown, Dos Cabezas. Also survived by sisters Jean, Joann, Sandra, and Janie.

Newark Mother, Daughter Die
Head-On Crash Kills 3
Three people are dead and two injured, one seriously, after a two-car head-on collision on Ohio 16 east of Newark.
Killed about two yesterday afternoon were passengers: Rose Ann Givens, 20, of 403 1/2 Maple Ave., her daughter, Sheryl,* two months, and the driver of the other vehicle, Margaret Nichols, 43, of Coshocton. There were no passengers in the Nichols' auto.
Listed in poor condition at Licking County Memorial Hospital is O'Neil Hersman, 43, of Rt. 2, Warsaw, while Leon Givens, 28, husband of the dead woman, is in fair condition.
The two women and baby girl were the county's first three traffic fatalities of 1969.
The accident occurred about six miles east of Newark, just west of the corporate limits of Hanover.
The highway patrol reported that the car driven by Hersman was going east, and in attempting to pass a vehicle, hit the Nichols' auto head-on.
Harold McDonald of Rt. 1, Newark, was driving in back of the Hersman auto at the time of the accident.
He said at the scene that he didn't see the collision, but only heard "something which sounded like an explosion."
All four persons in the Hersman car were thrown from the vehicle, according to reports. The Nichols' woman was pinned inside.
The highway patrol said that both vehicles were equipped with seat belts, but that no one in either car was wearing them.
Sections of the front hood of the Hersman auto were strewn down an embankment on the south side of the road, and the Nichols' vehicle had its front license plate torn off from the force of the impact.
The accident caused east and westbound traffic to be jammed up for two miles, and the highway patrol reported that the last officer did not leave the scene until about 5:10 p.m.*
The patrol said the accident is still under investigation.
Services for Mrs. Givens and her daughter, Sheryl* Lynn, will be at 2 p.m. Monday at Morrow-Crouse Funeral Home, Granville, with burial in Wilson Cemetery. The Rev. A. Gary Angleberger will officiate.
Mrs. Givens was born May 30, 1948, in Granville, the daughter of Ralph E. and Mammie Dixon Collins Jr.
She attended Granville High School and married Leon Oliver Givens in Heath, Sept. 30,1956.***
She is survived by her husband and parents, one sister, Mrs. John Givens of Newark; two brothers, Ralph and Grant of Granville, and her grandmother, Mrs. Ralph E. Collins Sr. of Granville.
Sheryl Lynn Givens, born Nov. 21, 1968, in Licking County Memorial Hospital, is survived by her paternal grandparents, Mr. Clarence Barcus and Frances Givens, both of Newark.
Friends may call at the funeral home after noon Sunday.
* The name of the baby, listed here as SHERYL, is listed as CHERYL on the Ohio, Deaths, 1908-1932, 1938-1944, & 1958-2007 about Cheryl L Givens.
** The last digit of this time was difficult to read, and the “0" may not be correct here.
*** Although this looks to me like 1956, that is highly unlikely since she would have been only eight years old. Possibly it was 1966.
