When my mother was 11, she came home from school to find her mother's body — strangled with her bra and shot four times —in her rural home. It was 1969 in Indiana, at a time when DNA testing evidence was an impossibility. The man or men who orchestrated the killing of Helen, my grandmother, were never found, but the KKK, who had ties to the police force at the time, will always be suspect in her murder.
