JACKSON, Miss. – The search for courtroom justice in the 1964 killings of three civil rights workers in Mississippi's Neshoba County has ended, but some say the search for another kind of justice is still ongoing.
Mississippi's attorney general announced last week there's no longer any way to gather enough evidence to charge the remaining living suspects in the slayings of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner.
Relatives of the three say their deaths should prompt reflection about racism across Mississippi and the United States.
Eight people were convicted of federal civil rights violations related to the killings in 1967. And in 2005, Edgar Ray Killen was convicted of manslaughter. He remains in prison.
Leroy Clemons, who runs the Neshoba Youth Coalition, says ongoing racial reconciliation work has borne fruit in Philadelphia.
