There were a number of statements on a number of issues that were sent out, but they were sent to a number of people who would never dream of attempting to murder the witnesses against them. It just happened to in the group willing to do it in this case,” 18th judicial District Attorney George Brauchler said.

“[The Blacks] initially, a number of threats, came to him, there was a gun in his face, threatened he would continue to work together, it would result in the loss of his life. That had a big influence on him, but not so much that it overwhelmed his sense of right and justice. He went ahead and died as a result,” Brauchler said.
