New York, Feb. 28- A special to the Herald from Sherman, Ala., says: Thomas Douglas, a 13-year-old negro boy who on Monday shot and killed Deputy Sheriff Cowlett, who attempted to levy upon a cow which belonged to Douglas’ mother, has been riddled with bullets. His mother cut the body down. The coroner’s jury returned a verdict that the boy came to his death at the hands of persons unknown. The mother says she recognized some of the slayers son, and says she will prosecute them vigorously.
