The suspects in the murder of Joseph Kahahwai Jr., aboard the U.S.S. Alton where they
were confined during their murder trial: L to R, Edward Lord, Albert "Deacon" Jones,
Grace Fortescue (Thalia Massie's mother), Thalia Massie and her husband,
Lt. Tommie Massie. /



From left to right: Edward S. Jones, Grace Fortescue, O.A. Lord, and Thomas Massie. They are
accused of killing Joe Kahahawai. In September 1931, naval officer wife Thalia Massie, accused
five men of gang rape. After the first trial without a verdict, Massie's husband, mother, and
two US sailors killed one suspect, Joseph Kahahawai. Later investigations exonerated
the accused rapists.

and Mrs. Granville Fortescue. May 10, 1932.



The four defendants and their supporters were at 'Iolani Palace shortly after being found guilty of
manslaughter and sentenced to serve a one-hour "prison term" in 1932. From left: Clarence Darrow,
