PRISONER SAWS WAY OUT OF JAIL
W. H. Knight, Sentenced to Prison at St. Anthony, Escapes Monday.
St. Anthony, Nov. 22. – W. H. Knight, who was sentenced last week to from one to 14 years in the state penitentiary on a charge of burglary at the Last Chance Inn, September 13, broke out of the Fremont county jail Monday morning. Knight cut through the ceiling of his cell and up through the floor of the office of the county clerk, Leonard Kingsford, it was learned. The linoleum floor covering was cut on three sides and was carefully laid back in place. Mr. Gee, janitor for the court house stepped into the hole Monday morning about 8:30. He notified Deputy Sheriff J. A. Fredrickson. Jackson set the time of the escape at some time after 2 o’clock Monday morning. Jackson and Harold Mitchell notified officers up and down the valley. The left immediately tracing clues, which they declined to divulge. The hole cut in the clerk’s office floor was barley large enough for a man to crawl through. It was rectangular in shape and about 15 inches long and 10 inches wide.

Chicken thief kills King County Sheriff's Deputy Thomas Meehan near Kent on November 13, 1935.
HistoryLink.org Essay 3759
On November 13, 1935, a chicken thief shoots and kills King County Sheriff's Deputy Thomas Meehan (1891-1935). The uniformed officer surprised William Henry Knight on the old Valley Highway about one-half mile north of Kent. Police arrest suspects, but no one is charged with the murder. Knight will be killed by police in Butte, Montana, about a month later. Deputy Meehan's body was discovered by a farmer at approximately 3:00 a.m. near his patrol car. He had been working alone and had been shot in the face. One early theory hypothesized revenge for his pressure on a "gambling clique" involved in a case he was working. Meehan was quoted as saying, "I'm working on a hot one now, and when I catch up to the fellows I want it will be either me or them!" (The Seattle Times). Meehan had been on the job 11 months.  
 
The Seattle Times reported:
"A general round-up of all known criminals and persons whose manner of life leaves them open to suspicion was ordered this forenoon by Sheriff W. B. Severyns and his chief criminal deputy, O. K. Bodia. " 'It's to be a shakedown, boys,' Severyns told his staff of deputies. 'Turn the heat on everybody who might have had a motive, and who you believe might possibly have killed Meehan, or who might know something of it.'" After careful examination of the crime scene Sheriff Severyns reported: "The gunny sack, has been definitely traced as one put out by a Spokane poultry feed company which does not sell its product in this area, in fact no farther west than Coulee City. There are organized gangs of chicken thieves who usually operate away from home. Chickens stolen here are sold across the Cascades, or in Oregon, and we know of chickens stolen in Idaho that have been sold here." Latent fingerprints were found on the officer's leather puttee, apparently left when the killer(s) dragged him. A number of arrests were made, but no one was charged with Meehan's murder. Meehan was the fifth officer in Washington killed in the line of duty since July 15, 1935. Meehan's killer was ultimately identified as William Henry Knight who was killed by Butte, Montana, police on December 27, 1935. Knight had killed three people, including one police officer, in Butte and had taken a family hostage in their home. Knight released the family, who notified police. Knight was shot and killed as he attempted to escape the house. Knight had earlier told one of his hostages and a female companion that he had killed Deputy Meehan when Meehan caught the ex-convict stealing chickens.

Mother of Slain Butte Policeman Tells of Premonition About Holiday Dinner’
Butte, Dec. 25 – A feeling that the Christmas dinner she had been preparing would never be eaten proved tragically prophetic for Mrs. John P.O’Neill here today. She is the mother of Police Officer Thomas J. O’Niell, 37, shot down by a crazed killer whom he had been sent to arrest.  “It wasn’t exactly a premonition,” the gray-haired woman said brokenly. “But I had been feeling blue all day – I didn’t was to stay in the house alone, so I went down to the police station to see Tom. I remembered suddenly that Tom’s daughter would have celebrated her 12th birthday today had she lived. It was the first time I had ever been to the station. Tom was coming home later for dinner and I asked him to bring some ice cream. He wanted to take me home in a police car, but I said, ‘No, the walk and the air will do me good.’ I had been home only a few minutes when they told me Tom had been killed.”

Boise, Idaho, Dec. 25. – Warden Ira J. Taylor said tonight he is convinced Harry Knight, who is being sought throughout Montana and Idaho in connection with the slaying today of Tom O’Neill, Butte police officer, is a former inmate of the penitentiary here. A Henry Knight of Ashton, Idaho, served a term for burglary in the state prison in 1934 and 1935, the warden said. He was received from Fremont county and was pardoned this year. Knight left the prison on April 26, 1935, one year after his commitment. “The Henry Knight sought in Montana is the same man who served a term in the Idaho state penitentiary under the name Henry Knight Warden Taylor declared.  Taylor said Knight had been sought by department of justice officials in connection with the robbery of the Rigby bank last summer. In a long distance telephone communication from Butte tonight, Montana officers instructed Boise police to be on the lookout for Knight in the belief he might flee into this territory. The Montana police said they believed Knight was suffering from a wounded hand or arm and that he probably would attempt to obtain medical aid.

MONTANA SLAYER LEAVES BLOODY TRAIL
Posse Finds Body Of Man Believed New Killer Victim
KNIGHT THOUGHT AFOOT
Escape Car Found Near Place Where Woods Worked; Trail Tells Grim Story.
Butte, Mont., Dec. 27. (AP) – Butte police today announced the body of Floyd Woods, 44, ranch caretaker, believed to have been slain by Willian Henry Knight, Christmas day killer, has been found. Posses scouring a wide area in the hunt for Knight throughout southwester Montana reported to police headquarters here this morning that the body of Woods was located on a sand bank on the Madison river near Ennis, about 80 miles southwest of here. Wood had been shot to death. His blood stained automobile was located late yesterday near Anaconda, giving rise to the belief that Knight had doubled back on his trail after penetrating far into rugged country bordering Yellowstone National Park in his flight from Butte. Search for the suspect started Christmas afternoon in Butte, where a gun said by witnesses to have been wielded by Knight, slaughtered Policeman Tom O’neill, 37; mortally wounded Francis Walsh, young store executive; seriously injured a second policeman and narrowly missed giving a women painful wounds. The two recovering today were Policeman James Mooney, veteran officer who encountered the fugitive William Mahan of the Weyerhaeuser kidnaping case and retrieved part of the ransom, and Mrs. Florence Benevue. Mooney said Knight was the gunman. Knight, it developed in a statement to Police Chief Walter Shay by Miss Jean Miller, sister of Mrs. Benevue, shot to death Officer Thomas Mechan in Seattle November 13. Shay verified this by a telephone conversation with Sheriff William R. Severyna of Seattle. Miss Miller was held in jail on a technical charge pending arrival of a Seattle officer. With this information, police spread a wide search for Knight, who escaped from Butte in a stolen automobile. No traces were found until late yesterday when it appeared Woods was murdered. The man, a caretaker on a ranch in the Gallatin national forest sector adjoining Yellowstone park, was discovered missing by neighbors who called for a visit. Inspection of his place uncovered a bloody trail from the garage to the nearby roadside, as though a body was dragged. Fresh blood had been spilled about the garage floor. Stalled in a snowdrift near the ranch was the automobile Knight stole from Butte. Woods’ car was gone, but its tracks were followed as far as a bridge over the Madison river, on which more blood was found. This led police to the assumption that Woods’ body was dumped in the swift stream. A search was instituted. Nearly 200 miles from the ranch, Wood’s abandoned car, in which was blood-soaked suitcase, also was found stalled in a snowdrift. This was near Anaconda, and the posse concentrated in that section, theorizing that Knight left on foot and could not be far away.

OFFICERS SET TO NAB KILLER
Await Word From Montana Where Knight Believed Taken To Hills; Worked Here.
Henry Knight, hunted in the southwestern part of Montana near the Idaho state line for the murder of four men and wounding two others, has worked in Idaho Falls at various times as a cook. The last time he was here was in August, it was reported, when he worked at the Hotel Bonneville for about a week. He has friends and is known by many in the Roberts, Mud Lake and Birch creek country. Knight added his third straight killing to the list when allegedly murdered Floyd Woods at Lyon, Mont., Thursday. Christmas day he killed a police officer at Butte and a civilian, wounding two others. The fourth murder attributed to him is a deputy sheriff at Seattle last November. Peace officers throughout the eastern part of Idaho are on continuous lookout for Knight in case he should elude Montana officers and head this way. He is believed to have taken to the hills near Ralston, which is in Beaverhead county some 18 miles south of Anaconda. The car which he took from Woods was found there last night stalled. Blood was found on the car, local officers were advised. Early Friday morning Sheriff Harry Meppen, also the police here, contacted Sheriff McCullom at Dillon, Beaverhead county seat and the sheriff of Butte asking if more help was needed. They were informed that there are about one hundred armed men in posses combing the Ralston country for Knight. The Montana officers advised that the Idaho men be on the lookout and ready to act in case Knight gets through. Paul Crowder, police patrolman, and Cook went north on the Idaho-Montana highway last night, stopping at Dubois to pick up Sheriff Harry Rayner. When they reached Monida, they call Dillon and were informed that there was sufficient manpower there. Sheriff L. E. Davis of American Falls, Deputy Clark Poulson of Pocatello and William Cavanaugh of the Pocatello police came here early Friday morning and contacted Sheriff Meppen offering to help. Clyde Courtney and Bud Bliss, the latter of Pocatello, state patrolmen, are also waiting here. Report of the killing of Woods was received at the police station here from Dillon at 5:10 o’clock Thursday evening. Chief C. A. Carlson said. The car belonging to Wood of Lyon was found a short time before at Ralston. Lyon is on highway 191, but a few miles downstream below Hebgen lake dam. This is not a regularly traveled road, being west of the Bozeman highway. The car Knight had been driving was found about five miles from Lyon. Knight apparently after killing woods, doubled back over the same route. He probably detoured around Butte and went on west turning south toward Ralston where his car stalled. Officers believe he was attempting to reach a cabin which he has at Wisdom on highway No. 43 a few miles east of Big Hole pass on the Idaho state line. Thursday Sheriff Meppen and Deputy Dave Bequin were probably within a few miles of Knight when killed Woods at Lyon. They went north as far as Hebgen lake. The road to the dam was blocked by snow, he said. There were three cars in the sheriff’s party, carrying Robert Birch, policeman at Ashton; Sam J. Littlefield of St. Anthony; Sheriff C. V. Clark of St. Anthony; Cliff Watts, St. Anthony police chief; L. Jenkins, St. Anthony deputy, and O. M.  Packer, state patrolman. All were heavily armed, the sheriff said. They returned late Thursday night. Knight was a cook at the Hotel Bonneville here for some time, in 1931. Chief Carlson reports. He is known as Jack Knight, Fred Grayson, Jack Andrews and Harry Knight. Last August the man working at the hotel went by the name Harry Knight. Last fall, Sheriff Meppen said, Knight was picked up here as a suspect in the Rigby bank holdup the middle of August. He was not identified by bank officials.

Admitted Slayer of Four Dies by Officers’ Bullet
Henry Knight, Montana Fugitive, Routed Out and Shot In Butte.
Butte, Mont., Dec. 28. – AP – The death of an admitted killer of four men eased public tension in south-western Montana today while police and witnesses recounted events of a great manhunt. In a fog of tear gas, ex-convict William Henry Knight, 39, met a violent end after a posse surrounded the home of a PWA worker, a former employee of Knight, last evening and Assistant Police Chief Jack Duggan sent a bullet crashing into the fugitive’s head. Knight died several hours later in a hospital emergency room.  The finale of the exciting three day search came in the little dwelling of James Gilligan, who with his wife and two small children were held captives by Knight. Knight returned to Butte early yesterday morning. He had trudged 30 mile through the mountains and immediately went to the Gilligan home. Gilligan was at work, but his wife, Hazel, and two children, David, 5, and Hazel, 2, were kept under Knight’s gun all day.  Gilligan returned home for dinner and was also made captive. A few minutes later, the Gilligans asked Knight to be allowed to take the children to the nearby home of the tots grandmother, Knight consented, and the mother and father soon notified police. The climax came within a few minutes. Knight told Mrs. Gilligan he killed a Seattle policeman (Deputy Thomas Meehan on Nov. 13); two people in Butte (Officer Thomas O’Neill and Frank Walsh, 24-year-old store executive on Christmas day), and a man in southern Montana (Floyd Woods, ranch foreman whose body was found in the swirling Madison river, a bullet wound in the head, yesterday.) These statements were substantiated by Police Chief Walter Shay of Butte, Deputy Sheriff William B. Severyns of Seattle and Miss Jean Miller, onetime companion of Knight who is held for questioning in the Seattle killing.  Mrs. Gilligan said she had seen Knight three months ago with her husband. In 1929, Gilligan worked for Knight in a restaurant here. “I’ve got to have some place to stay.” He said, sitting down on a bed in a room adjoining the kitchen. Knight then began menacing Mrs. Gilligan, with his gun, she went on. “He wanted some eggs,” she said, “So he gave me a dollar. He pointed to my boy, David, and girl, Hazel. “I went to the store, but I didn’t dare tell anybody, for fear of my children. “ After I got his breakfast, Knight sat on the bed, while I washed the dishes. He told me about the men he killed and that he had been walking since Thursday afternoon from Anaconda. “He was awfully nervous and jittery and kept talking. Speaking of one of the deaths, he told me: “I had a man help me out of a snowdrift one afternoon. He looked at me and I could see he knew me. I pointed my gun like this (aiming straight ahead) and shot him between the eyes. I took his car and threw his body into the river when I crossed a bridge.’ (Woods’ body was found near the Hutchens bridge over the Madison river.) The search for Knight started on Christmas afternoon when he shot and killed Walsh and Officer O’Neill in a local apartment house where O’Neill and Officer James Mooney went to investigate a disturbance. Mooney and Mrs. Florence Benevue, apartment house tenant, also were wounded.

Young Butte Mother Tells How Killer Kept Her and Two Tots Captive for Day
Butte, Dec. 27. – A slight young mother, under five feet in height, tonight told how William Henry Knight, killer of four, kept hear and her two tots captive all day today, before police formed a cordon around the home and shot down the slayer. Mrs. Hazel Gilligan was the woman who faced Knight after his wild orgy of shooting that started here Christmas day. “This morning someone knocked on my back door,” Mrs. Gilligan said. As she talked she stood at the rear of her home, its rooms filled with tear gas fumes, a tiny Christmas tree alight in the front room, a red wagon, doll and a few other toys scattered on the floor. ”I opened it and Knight ran into the kitchen, a gun showing from his pocket,” she continued. “You know me?” Mrs. Gilligan said Knight asked her. “Yes,’ I replied.” Mrs. Gilligan said she had seen Knight three months ago with her husband, James Gilligan. In 1929 Gilligan had worked for Knight at the Montana café here, she stated. Gilligan, a WPA worker was away from home when Knight arrived. “Can I stay here,” she said he asked her. “  I don’t want you around here.” she told him. “I’ve got to have some place to stay,” she said he told her and then sat on the bed in a room adjoining her kitchen. “He began menacing me with his gun.” Mrs. Gilligan continued. “He wanted some eggs, so he gave me a dollar. He pointed his gun at my boy. David, 5, and girl, Hazel, 2. “I didn’t dare tell anyone when I went to the store, I was afraid for my babies. “After I got his breakfast Knight sat on the while I washed the dishes. He told me about the man he killed, pointing the gun and waving it around. First he told me that he had been walking since Thursday afternoon from Anaconda. He said he had come over the hills to Butte early this morning. “He was awful nervous and jittery and kept talking,” Mrs. Gilligan continued. “He told me: ‘I had a man help me out of a snowdrift one afternoon. He looked at me and I could see he knew me. He probably had heard the radio. I pointed my gun like this (aiming straight ahead) and shot him right between the eyes. I took the car and threw his body into the river when I crossed a bridge. Floyd Wood’s body was found in the Madison river at Hutchens bridge this morning. “Then he told me how he had shot a policeman and another man in a rooming house on Christmas day.” Mrs. Gilligan continued. “He told me again how he shot the man near Hutchens bridge. He pointed and waved the gun around. I sent Davey and Hazel into the front room where their Christmas was. They started to play with their toys. Once Davey came out and whispered to me: ‘Mamma, he’s got a gun.’ He knew what was happening but I don’t think little Hazel could tell. “Once Knight told me about shooting an officer on a ranch near Seattle. (Thomas P. Meehan, Seattle deputy sheriff, shot three miles from Seattle on Nov. 13.) He pointed the gun and showed just how he aimed at the officer. “I got him right in the head.” He said. “He didn’t say much about what he did until he came to Butte Christmas. But he kept telling me over and over again how he shot that fellow up at Hutchens and the Butte men and the Seattle officer. “In the afternoon someone rapped on the front door.” The women went on. “Knight made me hook the bedroom door from the outside. It was some fellow my husband knew one time, we don’t know his name, and he came in and talked for awhile. After he went Knight asked me to open the door. He curled up on the bed and be didn’t go to sleep. He just rested. “About 5 o’clock my husband came in. I was sure glad. He knew Knight right away. Knight told him he would, kill the kids first and then us if we tried to give him away. “I got supper and Knight sat at the end of the table near the bedroom door. Davey and Hazel sat by me on the other side. Red – my husband and I tried to get Knight to let us take the children out in case anything should happen. “Where would take them?” he asked us. “Up to mother’s house,” my husband told him. “She lives a couple of blocks up on East Park street. “Knight asked us if we could him some medicine at a drug store. We never heard of it before. I said I would if he would let me take the kids to their grandma’s.” ”About 5:30 he let us go out. He said it would be too bad for us if we squealed. We bundled the kids up and took them to Red’s mother’s house. Then we walked up to the police station. They got ready and went out. They did the rest.

Tacoma, Wash., Dec. 27 – Mrs. Edward A. Bichsel of Tacoma today faced the possibility she may unwittingly have allowed her brother’s killer to stay at her auto camp both before and after the slaying. Miss Jean Miller told Butte, Mont., officers she had stayed with W. H. Knight at the “Shady Nook” or “Shady Glen” tourist camp in Tacoma before and after the killing of King county Deputy Sheriff Thomas C. Meehan. She was quoted as accusing Knight of that slaying. A check of tourist camps today revealed only one with a name similar to those given. It was Shady Rest camp, operated by Mrs. Bichsel, a sister of the slain officer. Mrs. Bichsel, however, was unable to identify photographs of Knight or to recall the Miller woman. “If they were at our camp.” She said, “they must have been here only a day or two.

Fatally Wounded After Terrorizing Family During Day
Eludes Posses and Re-enters City Friday Morning; Forces Way Into Private Home and Threatens to Kill Women and 2 Children if They Attempt to Reveal Hideout to Officers
Butte, Dec. 27. – The bloody career of William Henry Knight, 39, fiendish four-time killer and Dillinger of the west, came to an end tonight when, cornered in a house at 11 South Oklahoma street here, he was fatally shot by Assistant Chief of Police Jack Duggan. Shot in the face, just as he himself had shot four men, Knight died at 10:33 o’clock tonight, in the emergency dressing room of St. James hospital. He had been taken there three and a half hours before. The end of his sensational three-day reign of terror, born of a Christmas quarrel, came when the family which he had been holding captive all day in their own home managed to escape and notify police. Taking no chances this time that the tragic story of Christmas afternoon might be repeated, police laid a barrage of tear gas bombs in the house before tackling the fugitive at close quarters, and then shot him down when, refusing to surrender, he attempted to blaze his way out behind bullets. Most fantastic of all the shocking chapters in Knight’s three-day murderous flight was that final one written today. After his murders here Christmas day and at Hutchens Christmas night, Knight all day Thursday, all that night, and all day today was being hunted in the open country between Butte, Deer Lodge, Anaconda and Dillon by a posse of hundreds, including every available police officer in this section of the state. And suddenly it developed, this evening, that Knight, abandoning his second stolen car near Anaconda Thursday morning, had walked all the way to Butte, nearly 30 miles, reaching this city this morning at 8:30 o’clock. Skulking through the early morning fog, he headed straight for the home of a man he knew well and formerly employed in Butte – James T. Gilligan. Gilligan, now a WPA employee, already had gone to work. Mrs. Gilligan opened the door, recognized the visitor at once and, menaced by the gun that was seen so much dreadful action this week, reluctantly admitted him. All day Knight stayed at the Gilligan home, talking constantly to the woman and her two small children, David, 5, and Hazel, 2. When Gilligan returned this evening at 5, he was added to the imprisoned group. But Knight’s need for medicine – he suffered from a disease – finally drove him to his room. He let the Gilligans, parents and children, leave upon their promise to return. Hustling the children to the grandmother’s home. Mr. and Mrs. Gilligan hurried to police headquarters and told their story to Chief of Police Walter I. Shay, Guggan, Officer E. O’Connor and three state highway patrolman in the chief’s office. After planning the capture police swooped down on the four-room dwelling. Officers Bart Riley and Emmett Sullivan took posts at the front door while Officer Ed O’Connor and Carl Smith, city electrician, guarded the back entrance. Assistant Chief Duggan broke the front window and fired a gas bomb into the house. He ordered Knight to come out. The fugitive retreated to a rear room where he met another cloud of gas and then he barricaded himself in a bedroom. In the meantime Assistant Chief Duggan took a station at the north side of the house while Chief Walter Shay and highway patrol officers took commanding posts around the building. Additional commands to Knight to surrender were ignored. “I was standing near the window,” Jack Duggan said,” when I saw Knight tearing cardboard away from a broken window. I fired through the cardboard and Knight spun around. In the meantime Officers Riley, Sullivan and O’Connor, all heavily armed, went into the gas filled house. It was with difficulty that they located the room in which Knight was hiding. “When I got to him, “Officer Sullivan said, “he was struggling and attempting to pull the trigger of a pistol he held in his hand. I pushed him backward and took his gun away. Officers Riley and O’Connor told substantially the same story. “From all appearances Knight attempted to escape the gas by seeking shelter in the clothes closet.” Officer Riley theorized. “When found he was slumped down on the floor between the closet and the bed. Part of his body was under the bed. An inspection of Knight’s gun, a .32 automatic Colt, disclosed that it was loaded with seven cartridges. None of the officers heard any shots fired by Knight. Upon entering the house, Officer Sullivan shot a lock from a bedroom door with a volley from a submachine gun. None of these bullets struck Knight. Duggan’s bullet struck Knight in the right side of the head, just behind the ear, and emerged from the left side just over the ear. Finding of Woods’ body at 8:30 this morning was announced at Ennis. Searchers led by deputies of Sheriff J. P. Erie, of Madison county, and Otto Kirby and his brother, Fred began the hunt after Otto Kirby and his wife found Woods missing and the automobile missing from the garage. When the Kirbys left the ranch. Woods remained alone. Neighbors told the Kirbys they had not seen Woods during the absence of the rancher and his wife over Christmas. The hunt for Woods brought to light the abandoned auto of Bill Lavelle, of Butte, which Knight commandeered after he shot O’Neill, Walsh, and Mooney and Mrs. Benevue here. This car got stuck in deep snow as authorities reconstructed Knight’s flight, and Knight left it to walk to the nearest ranch house. As the killing was reconstructed, Knight found Woods alone at Kirby’s place, killed him either Wednesday night or early yesterday, drove to the bridge, tossed Wood’s body into the Madison river, and then drove back toward Butte in Woods’ auto. Authorities believe Knight drove through Butte early yesterday and headed for a hideout near Ralston in Beaverhead country. When snow again halted his getaway, he set out on foot, for Anaconda. Woods had worked at the Kirby place for 25 years. He was unmarried. He has a brother and two sisters living in New York.

Seattle. Dec. 27 – The shooting of Harry Knight, in Butte, Mont., tonight led Sheriff William B. Severyns to write “solved” in the record of the slaying of one of his deputies, Thomas Meehan, near here on Nov. 13. When told of the end of the hunt for Knight, Severyns said: “There’s no doubt that he killed my deputy, and I’m glad they got him.” Jean Miller, companion of Knight, named him as Meehan’s slayer. Picked up by police after the slaying of three men in Butte Wednesday, she told the officer there that Knight on the day Meehan was killed, came to an auto camp where they were staying near Seattle and said: “Come on, let’s get out of here. I just knocked of a cop.” She described Knight as a chicken thief. When Meehan appeared, the woman said Knight told her, he was shot in the head by the ex-convict as he stepped from his car to a vacant section of the highway. Knight had eight chickens in a bag at the time, she was quoted as saying. A bag containing a few chicken feathers was found near Meehan’s body. The deputy died from a bullet wound in the head. He had been assigned to investigate reports of chicken thievery.

Long Crime Record Uncovered of Butte’s Christmas Killer; Paroled in Idaho This Year
Butte, Dec. 27. – Sheriff Larry Weir said his check of the criminal record of William Henry Knight hunted as the killer of two men her Christmas day and believed to have slain a ranch caretaker in his flight, showed the following:
Knight was arrested on Aug. 20, 1931, at Spokane as a fugitive. Released to Lincoln county, Washington, authorities Aug. 28, 1931, he was convicted of burglary and sentenced to serve from six months to a year in the Washington state penitentiary at Walla Walla. He was released from the prison Feb. 20, 1932, on parole.
He was arrested on a burglary charge at Reno, Nev., by police on May 3, 1933. He gave his name then as Henry Collins. The outcome of this arrest was learned.
On July 27, 1933, he was arrested in Alameda county, California, for investigation.
On Dec. 9, 1933, Stockton Calif., officers arrested him under the name of William L. Wright for driving without an operator’s license and for failure to have a registration certificate. He was rebooked “enroute to sheriff’s office, Sacramento, for burglary.”
On April 26, 1934, he was received at the Idaho state penitentiary on a burglary under sentence from 1 to 15 years. Warden Ira J. Taylor of the Idaho prison said a convict named Henry Knight of Ashtun, Idaho, served a term for burglary in 1934 and 1935. G men have hunted the ex-convict since then, the warden disclosed, for a bank Robbery last summer. After the Christmas  day killings, Knight was identified from the story of his woman companion. Jean Miller, told here, by Sheriff W. B. Severyns at Seattle, as the slayer of Deputy Thomas Meechan, Thomas Meehan, near Seattle, last month.

Western Justice
Justice as practiced in the frontier days in the western mining camp at Butte was handed out the last of the wee in this same city for one William Henry Knight, 39, admitted killer of four persons. A bullet through the head dropped him in his final attempt to elude capture. This way, although it may seem cruel to many, was the best ending for the wild shooting spree which Knight staged Christmas in Butte and the murder of another man the following day. Any man who shoots down his fellows in cold blood as did Knight, who by the way was an ex-convict from the Idaho state prison, deserves nothing better than a bullet. Knight was known here as a man who often became intoxicated and who flew off into fits of rage, threatening lives of others. Starting with his killing of a deputy sheriff in Seattle last November, Knight pursued one of the coldest blooded murder trails ever blazed through the west. When the officer stopped his car in Seattle that night after Knight had been stealing chickens, he said he “bumped him off” when he saw that the officer was alone. His life up to Christmas day proved uneventful insofar as murders were concerned, then when he thought his girl friend would “squeal” on him for the Seattle job, he went after her with a gun in a Butte boarding house. She escaped but the rumpus resulted in the police being called. When an officer stepped through the door to investigate, Knight shot him between the eyes. Another man, a civilian, was fatally shot and two others suffered wounds. Then Knight took to his heels, stealing a car and heading south toward Yellowstone park. A few miles downstream from the Hebgen lake dam his car got stuck in snowdrift. Floyd Woods received a bullet in the head because he was good enough to try and  help Knight get his car out. He dumped the body in Madison river, took Wood’s car and doubled back to Ralston where he had to abandon it. From then on his hours were numbered, officers shooting him down after routing him from a house with tear gas. Death of this murderer saves Montana the trouble and expense of prosecution.

MISSOULA MAN WHO KNEW KNIGHT WELL TELLS OF SYSTEM
Missoula, Dec. 31. --- William H. Knight, 39-year-old fiendish four-time killer shot down by Assistant Chief of Police Jack Duggan in Butte Friday night, well knew the highways of Montana, according to a Missoula man who knew him for several years.  Knight, according to the Missoula man, was a professional chicken thief. Crazed by fear that a woman who spurned his attention would inform officers as to his cold-blooded murder of a Seattle deputy sheriff, he ran amuck in Butte Christmas Day, killed two persons, and the next day had taken the life of a third man, all within 30 hours. The Missoula man who knew Knight said he operated in six states as a professional chicken thief. "He had a sedan outfitted like a tourist's car. The rear seats and cushions were removed, and in their places were built-in coops which would hold from 200 to 250 chickens. A light tarpaulin covered the coops and they had the appearance of tourist's luggage. "Knight would come to Missoula and make a drive up the Bitter Root and back, bringing probably 200 chickens which he would dispose of as any farmer would. Then he would hit the Flathead valley and the other districts and then go on. He tried to get the birds out of the big flocks so they would not be missed. "Knight boasted that once he got his hands on a chicken it would not squawk to give an alarm. He claimed to be an expert. He was a free spender, made many friends in cigar stores, and, treated everyone in the house at times. he claimed to me that his chicken thief operations netted him $50 a day. "Knight seldom made frequent visits to any one locality. According to the story he related, he operated constantly on a circuit which took him across Montana, into Wyoming, through Idaho, Washington, Oregon and down into California. "I had not seen Knight for months, and some of the reports of him of the past week would lead to believe that he was a drug addict. I never knew him as such. "He told me of a family in Idaho where he went frequently to furnish provisions and money. "I was surprised to read in the press of his cold-blooded murders without cause in Butte and the Madison last week, but I always did feel that in a pinch he was a man who would shoot.
