Tuesday, November 20, 1906 / Wednesday, November 21, 1906
He fell victim to the gun of County Officer CHASE Monday, November 19, 1906 after 7:00 pm at London and Godwin Street and a brother of his lies at the home of his mother with a bullet wound in his leg near the hip. According to the best information obtainable, those in position to know refusing to talk for publication, County Officer J.O. CHASE entered Legum's Bar and Grocery at the northwest corner of London and Godwin Street with a warrant for JOHNSON, on the charge of stealing a coat valued at $15.00. Placing JOHNSON under arrest, he started for Justice BUNTING's office, just a block away. After reaching the opposite corner, CHASE heard someone approaching from the rear and turned just in time to prevent being hit by JOHNSON's brother, WILLIAM. In turning, CHASE released NEIL JOHNSON, who also struck him. Finding himself attached from both sides, CHASE brought his gun in action and put a bullet in NEIL JOHNSON's neck, killing him almost instantly. Turning to resist a blow from WILL JOHNSON, who continued the attack, a second shot was fired, striking WILLIAM JOHNSON in the hip. Justice BUNTING summoned a coroner's jury. After viewing the remains, adjournment was taken until Tuesday night, November 20, 1906 at 7:30 pm, when they will meet at the office of Justice BUNTING to hear all of the witnesses. After hearing all the evidence regarding the shooting at London and Godwin Streets on Monday, November 19, 1906 by County Officer J.O. CHASE, the jury rendered a verdict to the effect that he came to his death from a pistol wound and fully exonerated Officer CHASE from all blame. According to the evidence brought before the jury, the action of Officer CHASE in firing when he did was found to be justifiable, as he was being attacked by both men, one of whom was a prisoner at the time. The condition of WILLIAM JOHNSON, who was shot in the hip during the trouble, was said to be about the same Tuesday night, November 20, 1906, no serious change having taken place.

Thursday, January 8, 1953
New York, January 7 - 58 year old author and explorer who with her late husband, MARTIN JOHNSON, filmed wild animals and natives in many remote parts of the world, died Wednesday, January 7, 1953. She was found dead in her hotel suite by her attorney, who said she had been preparing to make another safari in Africa in about six weeks. The attorney, JOHN CRANE, said she had been working day and night in preparation for the trip and probably "just worked herself out." She apparently died of a heart attack, in a two-hour interval between a chat with a hotel maid and the attorney's visit. Her famous husband died in an airplane crash in California in 1937 and she was badly hurt in the accident. But she gave more than 1000 lectures from a wheelchair and later recovered from her injury, a shattered knee, to make another trip to Africa in the mid-1940's with a movie company on location. Two years after his death, she secretly married a booking agent, CLARK H. GETTS and in 1941, the marriage was publicly solemnized by New York's late Mayor FIORELLO LA GUARDIA. She got an uncontested divorce from GETTS in Chicago in 1949 with permission to resume the name Johnson. She was born OSA HELEN LEIGHTY at Chanute, Kansas and is survived by her mother, Mrs. RUBY ISABEL LEIGHTY of Chanute. She was only 16 when she married Johnson and once said she had expected to settle in Chanute and "grow a couple of kids and a vegetable garden." Instead, she made countless jungle trips with him, helped film 17 movies, lectured and collaborated with him on many books about wild life. They began flying in 1932 and flew 60,000 miles over all sections of Africa. In later years, she estimated she had traveled about a million and a half miles during her career. Their first expedition in 1912, only two years after their marriage, took them to the South Seas. Later they explored and photographed natives and animals in the Solomons, New Hebrides and Boreneo. Between 1921 and 1934, they made five trips into the African jungles and after another trip to Borneo in 1935 and 1938, returned to East Africa in 1937 to head an expedition making the film "Stanley and Livingston". Her books with Johnson, many of which became movies, included "Cannibal Land", "Lion", "Camera Trails in Africa", "Safari - A sage of the African Blue", "Congorilla" and "Over African Jungles". On her own, she wrote "I Married Adventure", "Four Years in Paradise" and a number of children's books about jungle animals. After Johnson's death, she became head of Martin Johnson Pictures, Incorporated, and produced several more films.
