A group of federal judges have sealed the fate of a refuted member of the Klu Klux Klan, throwing out his appeal for a 2007 conviction and sentencing him to three life sentences.
74-year-old James Ford Seale will never see the light of day again 43 years after he kidnapped and killed two Black men in Mississippi in 1964.
Based on his conviction, Seale and a group of his fellow Klansmen captured 19-year-old Charles Eddie Moore and 19-year-old Henry Hezekiah Dee in southwest Mississippi and took them to the backwoods.
Following that they tossed the two young men in the trunk of a car before tying them up, weighing them down and throwing them into the Mississippi River, possibly while they were still alive.
The bodies of Dee and Moore were recovered weeks later, identifiable only by personal objects found with them.
A Mississippi jury convicted Seale of two counts of kidnapping and one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping in 2007 giving him three sentences.
He is currently in a federal prison in Indiana.
Proof that it’s never too late for justice.
