Former Sheriff Arrested in killing of 2 boys 43 Years Ago

From Charles Moore and Henry Dee disappeared one hot afternoon in rural Mississippi after stopping for ice cream at a roadside stand. The next time their relatives saw the 19-year-olds, they were in pieces β€” a clutch of divers came across the boys' torsos, weighted down with automobile parts, during the well-publicized search for the bodies of three civil rights workers in Philadelphia, Miss.

James Ford Seale, a 71-year-old former sheriff's deputy, was arraigned in Jackson, Miss., Thursday for kidnapping Moore and Dee 43 years ago β€” an abduction during which the teenagers were killed. Charles Moore's brother, Thomas, talks about his role in solving the case.
