A 73-year grandfather and his 23-year old grandson were slaughtered, possibly for having a confederate flag hanging outside their home. The grandmother, who survived, hid in a bedroom. The murderers beat and shot the two victims to death.
Some suggest that demonizing the confederate flag has become a trigger. The police have not suggested a motive.
On July 23rd, two black males stormed the home near Piedmont, AL. Two white males, Joshua Moody 23, and Travis Frost, 73, a grandson, and his grandfather were beaten and shot to death. Mr. Travis’s wife hid and was not found by the attackers, local TV reported.
