    FBI Seeking Victims Next Of Kin 

    CIVIL RIGHTS-ERA COLD CASE INITIATIVE:

    SEEKING VICTIMS’ NEXT OF KIN

    DESCRIPTION

    As part of the Civil Rights-Era Cold Case Initiative, the FBI is currently re-assessing more than 100 unsolved or inadequately solved racially motivated homicides from the civil rights era. The FBI intends to notify the victims’ families of the results of the investigation. Unfortunately, however, due to the passage of time and the migration of many families, the FBI has been unable to identify the next of kin in 33 cases. The names and circumstances of these victims are listed below in hopes that the public may be able to provide information that can assist the FBI in locating surviving family members.
