Mississippi Cold Case
Solving A Murder From the Civil Rights EraUnknown - 2009
In the summer of 1964, two black teenagers, Charles Moore and Henry Dee, were found murdered in Louisiana. The atrocity was soon eclipsed by the "Mississippi Burning" case and forgotten. Forty years later, Moore's brother Thomas and CBC documentary filmmaker David Ridgen reignited a quest for justice. This award-winning film documents their investigation, which included the remarkable discovery that one of the suspects-a Ku Klux Klansman named James Ford Seale, presumed to have died years earlier-was in fact alive. Viewers will learn how the efforts of Moore and Ridgen led federal authorities to reopen the case and, after a legal roller-coaster ride, secure an indictment, a trial, and a conviction.
