Civil Rights-Era Cold Case Initiative Seeking Next of Kin FBI NY


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 34 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.
UPDATE: Next of kin have been successfully located for each victim listed in RED. We are still seeking next-of-kin information for the remaining cases.
