Danbury Evening News - October 12, 1893 - Superior Court rules in favor of Phillip Sunderland and Sheriff Crofutt.

Dublin Core


Crofutt and Sunderland sued the city of Danbury for the reward money, which the city offered, for information leading to the arrest and conviction of parties involved in setting or attempting to set fires in Danbury during 1888-1889. Both claimed they were instrumental in the arrest and conviction of the arsonist but the city refused to pay them the reward money. In the end the Superior Court ruled in favor of Crofutt and Sunderland.
