MONROE, Ga. (AP) -- Students from Kennesaw State University and
Bauder College will excavate the rural Walton County site where two
black couples were lynched in 1946.
The team will join firearms experts Oct. 9 to conduct the first
ever metal survey of the area near Moore's Ford Bridge in Monroe.
It was there an angry white mob tied Roger and Dorothy Malcom and
George and Mae Murray Dorsey to trees, fired three volleys of
bullets at them and then left their dead bodies in the dirt.
Dorothy Malcom was seven months pregnant.
The case remains unsolved and was untouched for years until
being reopened by Gov. Roy Barnes about a decade ago. The Justice
Department followed suit in 2007.
