Birth: 1896
Georgia, USA
Death: May 18, 1934
Shreveport
Caddo Parish
Louisiana, USA

Known as the "Butterfly Man," he murdered a 15-year-old girl named Maggie Mae Giffin in Shreveport in 1934, was tried, and executed. He was the last person legally executed in Caddo Parish, La. He was part of a crowd in Georgia that in 1915 had lynched one Leo Frank in connection with the similar killing of a girl named Mary Phagan, and some writers have speculated that Napier was Phagan's killer as well. He also used the name "Fred Lockhart" and this is how he was largely referred to in the papers of the day. The state of Louisiana has death certificates with both names. The Shreveport city sexton's record uses the Napier ID. Napier lies in an unmarked grave in Shreveport's Greenwood Cemetery.
