Excerpt from Illinois: Courthouses on the Circuit; Excerpts From Newspapers and Other Sources In June, 1855, a man name Isaac Wyant became embroiled in a street brawl over a land boundary dispute. One Anson Rusk shot Wyant in the arm. After the limb was amputated near the shoulder, Wyant murdered Rusk in the County Clerk's office in Clinton, Illinois, on October 12, 1855. He shot him four times in broad daylight and in the presence of several witnesses. In 1857 the case (the People v. Wyant) was tried in Bloomington, Illinois (march 31-april on a change of venue. David Davis was the judge, and Lincoln aided the prosecution. Wyant pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. His sanity had been questionable long before the murder, and several doctors, including the Superintendent of the State Hospital for the Insane at Jacksonville, testified for the defense. Wyant was acquitted and became an inmate at Jacksonville for several years thereafter. He was eventually released on condition that he return to his native Indiana to stay.
