Howard grew up near the former site of the Moore's Ford Bridge, in Monroe.

It's where two African American couples in their twenties were shot hundreds of times.

One victim was reportedly 7-months pregnant.

"What the leader of the Ku Klux Klan did was made sure everybody shot into those bodies," said Howard to a group of students at the site of the murder.

Howard went on to say: "Understanding what it was like here in 1946, you can better understand how people did things like this and walked away and nothing was done about it."

An FBI investigation did not lead to an arrest. Now decades later, students at Kennesaw State University and Bauder College Cold Case Research Institute are hoping to crack the cold case.
