#50 Harry Moore and the Groveland Four


Harry and Harriette Moore and daughters
Samuel Shephard, Walter Irvins, Earnest Thomas, Charles Greenlee

On December 25, 1951, was a double celebration for Harry & Harriette Moore of Mims, Florida. Not only was it Christmas, but the couple were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. In those 25 years, the Moore’s had raised 2 daughters, taught countless children in segregated schools within Brevard County Florida, and founded the Brevard County chapter of the NAACP, just to name a few accomplishments.  It had become a tradition for the couple to cut their anniversary cake just as they had on their wedding day, arm in arm, hand in had.  As they sliced their cake that evening, they had no idea they would become the first assassinations of the civil rights movement.

#49 The Chameleon Killer

Beverly McGowan
St. Lucie County Florida is a community located about 90 miles north of Miami and it is just what you would expect in sunny Florida-hot and humid. The area is a heavy on the wildlife with lots of swampy canals running throughout which empty into the famed Florida Everglades. For a killer, there is no better place to dump a body because if the weather doesn’t help decay the body fast, the critters will get it and within a short amount of time, there will be no evidence that a crime was ever committed. Or, at least, that is what a killer was hoping for but one July evening, fate was not on this killer’s side. A body was left behind and it would lead to years of trying to catch the infamous killer with lots of names.
