Around 7 p.m., on Sunday evening, Dec. 18, 1921, Harry, who was the secretary to the Tulsa, Oklahoma, police commissioner and purchasing agent for the police and fire departments, drove his car to the home of Ike Wilkerson, a police detective who lived just a few blocks away.

The pair planned to spend the evening shooting rabbits along the road to Jenks, a town just south of Tulsa. As they rode along the highway, Ike held a .44 caliber shotgun on his lap just in case they jumped up a rabbit.
