“A Mass burial site of many dozens of black men, who had been subjected to brutal torture and [then] murdered, has been found,” Cartwright said. “In many cases, body parts are missing; most victims had been shot in the head.”




Cartright said that the mass grave was uncovered when the current owner of the property was making extensive renovations to the house and needed to dig up the foundations. “The current occupier was excavating the southern end of the property when he came across some leg bones,” Said Cartwright. “He notified local law enforcement who then called in the FBI once they realized the extent of the number of victims.” Authorities state it’s still very early in the recovery and identification process, but they estimate the grave to be at least 50 years old and contain upwards of 10 bodies.



Eldon Lee Edwards died in 1960. He was charged with involvement in the abduction, torture and murder of three black men in 1944, but he was never convicted.

I don't want to hear... oh but this is a new Klan today, or inane comparison to Blacklivesmatter, or how White ppl can't have orgs to help white ppl and equate that to the NAACP.. # outta here with those damned false equivalencies...
BAND AMERICA'S OLDEST TERRORIST ORG.
Reopen cold cases and prosecute those geriatric #, file suits against family holdings and give the victims families compensations..
Those #ers should not die peaceful in bed.

Thats crazy.
Makes ya wonder how many other properties have mass graves from crazy f@@s around the country.

He obviously got away with this because of the culture back then.


Not really sure why OP decided to put buzzword qualifiers into the post though.

I highly doubt that's the direction the thread would have gone, but now...there's no guarantee.

Sadistic serial killer with a warped sick self justification for his actions.

Wonder if he acted alone or had accomplices?

Sounds like one Sadistic Bastard.

Time-line from the story appears to be from the mid-40's at first accusations. Wonder if he can be traced back to the National Socialist of the time before the war.

Trespassers no doubt.
There needs to be an investigation.


Probably not trespassers. Back in the day the KKK used to just wait until you were walking alone and they'd snatch you up.

And thay would be it. No body would be found, no one would be arrested. It seems they found some of the bodies.

As I was reading this, all I thought was damn, those poor souls, and these racist klan #ers should burn in hell for this.

There was no need to get political with it. There is no doubt these were innocent men and this was a hate crime.

Because it can never be what it is to some.
They have to make it something else.

Because often right here on ATS ppl made those false equivalencies the fact that many Klan members are police members today, should be of concern.

Many klan members are police officers?

You ruined your own thread.

FBI warned of white supremacists in law enforcement
10 years ago. Has anything changed?

Given racial tensions in the US right now I worry how this will affect some people.
These men died over 70 years ago but I have a feeling some will react as if this happened yesterday.

I agree the KKK should be put out of business for good, something way overdue actually.

Eta:I missed the one line about missing body parts. This still does not amount to dozens though. Going by the headline I thought I was going to read about finding 24 or more victims. We really don't need any distortions in titles about things this bad.

Not really sure what your point is. This was a horrible, terrible thing done by a racist. It does not make BLM or related groups any less racist.

I get that point. I just thought from the thread title and attached article that this would be a little different thread, until I got to your closing remarks, then I was put off by the thread.

It seems you have a point to make, but didn't want rebuttals. I know this isn't your first time on the internet, so you can't play dumb when you knew EXACTLY what was going to happen when you framed your OP that way.

I just wish we could have discussed this crazy bastard and the culture back then rather than bring 21st century politics into.

To OP- I understand the point you tried to make with your posting of this story and your subsequent post, it just seems like that's a whole other thread than what I clicked on.

That's not what your thread is about.
Or is it?
