Man convicted in slayings of 3 civil rights workers dies in prison
Edgar Ray Killen, the man convicted of organizing the deaths of three young men in Neshoba County registering backs to vote in 1964 has died in prison, the Mississippi Department of Corrections said in a press release this morning. Killen, a tree-cutter and small-time preacher, was a founding member and main recruiter for the KKK in the Philadelphia area of MS in 1964 when James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner were investigating a church fire, the New York Times reports.
A federal trial on civil rights violations in the 1960s ended in a hung jury.
After a 1967 mistrial, the case was reopened by the state in 2005 and Killen was convicted of three counts of manslaughter.
"The 15 men who murdered Goodman, Schwerner and Chaney weren't indicted, much less tried". They'd been in the area to speak to the community of Longdale about a church that had recently been burned down.
