Henderson Thomas same page "Three Men in Jail Charged with the Murder of Thomas Henderson" News Item from San Diego, Texas, September 21: "The examining trial of F. Garcia, P. Rosa and D. Molino, accused of the murder of Thomas Henderson at Benavides on the night of the 19th, was concluded to-day at Benavides, and the prisoners bound over in the sum of $1000 each, and in default were brought down on this evening's train and placed in the county jail here. Evidence is very strong against one of the accused, D. Molino. He was tracked from where the murder was committed to his home. There was also found in his possession a pistol with an empty chamber, evidently discharged but a short time previous, and the empty shell corresponded to the ball taken from the dead man's head. The connecting the other two men with this heinous crime is not known at this time, but it is believed to be sufficiently strong to give them a number of years at Huntsville. It was reported from reliable information that lynching was strongly talked of yesterday in Benavides. Deceased was a young man, a Cuban by birth, but of English parents, and had no relatives here. His remains were interred at 4 o'clock yesterday evening."
