Description

Scolforo examines "the suspicious death of black York resident Carl E. Williams Sr. in 1965." The investigative series, which is part of the newspaper's ongoing coverage into events surrounding York City's riots of 1969, reveals that Williams was probably a victim of police brutality. Though official records state that the black man died of a heart attack, interviews with the two now-retired police officers shown a number of discrepancies in their version of what happened. The series sheds light on the exhumation of the body, following the findings, and provides ongoing coverage on the re-examination of the case.
