April 1936 - Parker Brookins, found not guilty - violation of the prohibition law.

2/15/1913, Eatonton, Georgia , The body of a negro named "General" Thomas, was discovered 10 days ago floating in the Little River.  He was last seen on the "Brookins Farm." Two negros have been arrested and placed in Putman Jail.  One of the negros, Will Broadnax made a confession implicating young Sam Brookins, son of Jack Brookins, a quiet hard working farmer living three miles from the city had paid the negro $10.00 in cash and a good over coat to kill "General" Thomas who was last seen in town with Sam Brookins.  He was never heard from again and his body was found two months later.  Brookins was later arrested at night fall on a Saturday, and placed in city Calaboose Jail and carried down immediately to Milledgeville, Georgia jail.  The negro who made the confession gave directions where to find the over coat that had been given to him by Mr. Brookins.  To futher the fact that Sam Brookins is said to have had a quarrel with the negro, "General" Thomas a short while before he disappeared.  Strong evidence points to Mr. Brookins.  Sympathy for Jack Brookins, the boy's father, and his family is practically universal.  He is a hard working farmer, the son of a confederate soldier who died during the war and a man who has lived quietly and worked hard and made a success in life owning a good farm, a paying country store and other enterprises.  The father's distress over his sons arrest is indeed pitiful and touched deeply the hearts of all who witnessed the sad sight.  Ref: Macon Telegraph
