Frank Carey and Cyclone Johnson Book

On June 8, 1900, Frank Carey arrested a street preacher named Cyclone Johnson and brought him to trial at the livery stable on W. Main Street in Carmel. A fight broke out, and when the dust settled, both men lay dead, one on top of the other.

Johnson killed Carey, but who shot Johnson? After 120 years, we finally have the answer.
