In Ohio, two Cincinnati policemen stabbed to death in a city house of prostitution

Two Cincinnati policemen, Officers Clairborne Long and Daniel Hallam, were stabbed late in the evening at a house of prostitution in the city.  Both died the next day and two brothers, Constance and Romain Lohrer were arrested for the crime.  A mob soon formed to storm the prison and lynch the culprits.  The mayor, however, had dispatched a local volunteer unit, the Guthrie Grays, to defend the building and this attack was dispersed.  (By John Osborne)
