Albuquerque Journal, Albuquerque, NM-Front Page-Wednesday, February 7, 1940
Clovis, N.M. Feb 6(AP)- Ray Tittle, 21-year-old Texan, pleaded guilty to manslaughter charges Tuesday in the fatal shooting several weeks ago of John W. Raburn, Texico WOA worker, during a petty dispute over a domino table.

Tittle will be sentenced Friday by District Judge Harry L. Patton, before whom he was to go on trial. He had been under $5000 bond and held in the county jail.

Raburn was slain following an altercation between him and Tittle rising from Raburn's sitting on a domino table belonging to Tittle.

Information from Dorothy Bernay - #47057119:
His name is William Joshua Raburn. Born 3 Oct 1889 (based on 1900 census shows 10/1889, hissister, my grandmother was born 7/1891 so it is likely he was born in 1889 although his draft registration card shows 10/3/1890, in Hood County, Texas.
