White Suspects Finally Tried For Lynching Black Man; Two Were Cops

AFRICANGLOBE - After 34 years of injustice, the family of Timothy Coggins may finally get a chance to see his killers get what they deserve. In a crime that is reminiscent of the brutal killing of Emmett Till, Coggins was murdered in Griffin, Georgia, in 1983, which is 40 miles south of Atlanta. Coggins, 23, was killed after he was seen leaving a bar with a White woman on Oct. 7, 1983. Coggins was stabbed multiple times in the neck, stomach, and back. He was eventually tied to a pick-up truck with a chain around his leg and dragged. Coggins’ lifeless body was severely damaged when he was found.
