Miner murdered in 1921 Harlan Co. - Help?

I am looking for any sort of information on the death of Jacob Branon, he was a coal miner in Harlan County, Kentucky when he was shot and killed.
I do not know the events surrounding the death, that's what I'm looking for help with.
Jacob was the son of Lee Roy Branon and Rachel Elliott of Laurel County. He was a veteran of the Spanish American War. Jacob was born 9 May 1877 and died 3 Jul 1921.
I have a copy of his death certificate, which is how I know he was killed in Harlan County.
I would be interested in newspaper articles, obituary, known reasons for murders during early July 1921, anything would be helpful. Thank you.

Not sure if you'll still be looking at this site, and you may have already seen it....but If you go to Find A Grave you can see a picture of his gravesite - http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Br...;. I don't have other information about him.
