Madisonville Democrat, (Monroe Co. TN) Wednesday, November 27, 1935
“Charged With Murder Of Young C.C.C. Boy---Leonard Reese, member of a C.C.C. Camp near Tellico Plains, was held to court on $5,000 bond Thursday of last week, in the death of Carl Gofford, 20, another C.C.C. youth, who was stabbed to death in a fight.
Gafford was taken to Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., for treatment, where he died Wednesday night.
The trouble is said to have arisen a week before when the boys engaged in an orange peel battle, later began scuffling and finally went into a fight.”
