Information sought about Manuel Garcia Sanchez

Ruben Sanchez is seeking information about his grandfather, Manuel Garcia Sanchez, who lived in Williams around the years of 1928-1931. Manuel was arrested and tried for killing a man in Williams. According to family members, the arrest came after Manuel pawned a gun for money to take the family to a carnival in town. Authorities held Manuel in jail in Williams and Flagstaff until his trial.

At the trial, Manuel took the stand but did not understand the questions because he did not speak English. Manuel was released when the man responsible for the killing came forward. The man told police that he killed the other man for butchering his cow.

Those with information about these events may contact Sanchez by phone at (480) 882-1518 or by email at
