JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A new podcast examines the 1964 killings of two young black men by Ku Klux Klan members in Mississippi.

The Canadian Broadcasting Corp. released “Someone Knows Something: Dee and Moore” on Monday.

In May 1964, Klansmen kidnapped and attacked Henry Hezekiah Dee and Charles Eddie Moore in a federal forest in southwestern Mississippi and drove them into Louisiana before dumping them into the Mississippi River. Investigators dragged the men’s remains from the river months later.

CBC documentary filmmaker David Ridgen and Moore’s brother, Thomas Moore of Colorado Springs, Colorado, traveled to Mississippi in 2005 and uncovered evidence that they shared with federal prosecutors.

In 2007, a jury convicted Ku Klux Klansman James Ford Seale of kidnapping in the deaths of Dee and Moore. He died in prison in 2011.
