Supplemental data on O.K. Fullerton
“Murphy” was around the area even at the scene of Edna Richards and Tom Jenkins deaths at Governor Richards’ ranch house on Big Trails 1913. He was also known as Packrat Murphy, but his real name is Ormand Kenedy Fullerton (Fulleton), son of Clarence James Fullerton (Fulleton) and Jeanette A. Malcolm. He was born in Benton, Indiana June 20, 1882 and died 20 March 1945 in Ten Sleep. Ref. FamilySearch.org.
Online mention: “Two other men were briefly suspected, O.K. Fullerton and Tom O’Day. Fullerrton, nicknamed Packrat Murphy, was an odd jobs man around the ranch. According to local lore, he had been attracted to Edna and was reportedly known to be a thief in the area O’Day was a former member of the Hole-in-the-Wall Gang and had served a prison term for horse theft. An old trail ran by the Richards cabin, “A route formerly travelled by bad men going from Thermopolis…to the Hole—in-the-Wall,” wrote Richards to Van Devanter. This fact plus O’Day’s presence on or near the ranch around the time of the murder put him briefly under suspicion. However, there was no hard evidence against either O ‘Day or Fullerton.”
