Agent Moye succumbed to gunshot wounds received three days earlier while investigating robberies from the railroad in Esom Hill (Polk County), Georgia. Agent Moye had confronted two suspects in the railroad depot in Esom Hill and ordered them to put their hands up. The suspects instead opened fire, striking Agent Moye in the abdomen. He was taken to a hospital in Cedartown where he succumbed to his wounds three days later.
Agent Moye had served with the Seaboard Air Line Railroad Police for 7 years and had previously served as an officer for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. He was survived by his wife, three daughters and five sons.
The Seaboard Air Line Railroad gave Agent Moye's widow a $2,000 one-time payment for his murder. The badge displayed to the left is Agent Moye's actual police badge.
