The Clarion Ledger reports, KKK member responsible for the 1964 murder of three civil rights workers in Mississippi has died. He was serving a 60-year-sentence for manslaughter. Edgar Ray Killen was 92. He was suffering from congestive heart failure and hypertension. A tree-cutter and small-time preacher, the New York Times reports that Killen was a founding member and main recruiter for the KKK in the Philadelphia area of Mississippi in 1964. That is when civil rights workers James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner traveled to the area to investigate a church fire. The three civil rights workers in their early 20s were arrested and then released to Klan members. The Klansmen shot them and buried the bodies.
