Following a tip that Dillinger gang member Edward Shouse would be at the Frances Hotel in Paris, Ill., Trooper Teague was waiting nearby in his patrol car. When Shouse and two female accomplices arrived at the hotel, Trooper Teague struck the Shouse's car with his vehicle. As Shouse attempted to escape, a gun battle ensued and Trooper Teague was killed in the crossfire.
Although Teague's hometown is listed as Indianapolis, ISP officials told The Brazil Times they believe the officer had roots in the Clay County area. For more information about ISP personnel killed in the line of duty, log onto Memorial portion of the ISP website located at www.in.gov/isp/2336.htm.
