Following the death of Sheriff Hall a posse was formed and a search mounted for Hall's assailant. Within four days, Flagler County Sheriff's Office suffered yet another tragedy when Sheriff's Deputy George "Son" Durrance was killed in a case of mistaken identity. Durrance was searching an area in St. Augustine for the murder suspect when he was shot by a night watchman at the post office where the search was being conducted. The watchman mistook Durrance for a robber. Deputy Sheriff Durrance was mortally wounded and died hours later after being transported to a St.Augustine hospital.
