Description

"During the summer of 1969, York City experienced seven days of race rioting. Two people were killed as a result: a black woman from South Carolina who was visiting relatives and a white rookie policeman. Neither case was ever solved. On the 30th anniversary of the riots, the York Sunday News ran a series of stories including several investigative pieces focusing on the murders. As a result, the country District Attorney reopened the murder investigations."
