An article in The Tampa Times, published in Tampa, Florida on February 22, 1929 "Jury Probing Lynching Case Finds Nothing: Evidence Lacking in Hernando County Hanging". Eighteen-year-old African-American man, Buster Adams was taken from the Hillsborough County, Florida jail in Tampa, to protect him from threatened mob violence after he was charged with attacking a thirteen-year-old white girl.
