Bill was blamed for it, arrested, and jailed in Pekin, Illinois. A huge mob broke into the jail about midnight or shortly thereafter, shot and mortally wounded Bill Berry in a melee in the jail, and hung him by the neck from a nearby tree where he died on 31 July. Ike and the remainder of the gang were captured and sent to prison. William Berry was buried at Woodrow Cemetery, South Pekin, next to his mother, in an unmarked grave.
