I don’t think I’m going to add it to her casefile, but I found out about another tragedy in Trinia Williams‘s family: her mother’s husband was murdered in 1969, shot by a neighbor during an argument. The murder is rather infamous in Columbus history because, although it doesn’t appear to have been racially motivated, it did spark a race riot which featured firebombings, another person being killed, hundreds of people getting arrested, and 1,200 National Guardsmen being called in to restore order.
I assumed at first that Roy Beasley was Trinia’s father, but the math says not: he died five years before Trinia was born.
Whilst trying to find more info on Trinia’s case I found this, but it wouldn’t let me play the video. More’s the pity; I have little enough as it is and would have liked some more.
