Photo essay: Where children sleep

Alfred and Lauren Wright enrage Jasper Texas racist sheriff Maddox and his friends who lynch him and then cover up his murder in 2013! They call a cut throat, missing eyes, ears, tongue, teeth and a slit throat accidental death after calling off the search saying he ran off. The police went so far as to post on Lauren's face book page: "He's laid up drinking cold beer watching football some place warm!"
