QUESTION 3
INTERVIEWER:

THE BOYS WENT HOME RIGHT, THEY DIDN'T MAKE ANYTHING OUT OF IT. THEY WENT BACK TO THEIR GRANDFATHER'S.

Willie Hill Jackson:

No, they, when he left there they said he went to Greenwood, you know. They, they was on their way to Greenwood anyway, they just stopped by there, so—-and they left there and went to Greenwood, and then they come back home sometime oh, 11:00, 12:00, between 11:00, 12:00 that Saturday night. I think now, I'm not sure. And so this lady's husband wasn't—-wasn't home. He was off on a—oh, I don't know, a vacation or went off on a trip, something like that. And ah, when he come in someone, someone told him what had happened. Then he, he and ah, they say it was some colored fellow was up there. And he got this fella and they went to, to go show him where this, you know, where this boy lived. And they went down there and got him out so. So the boy was missing for what, almost a week, I believe, or about a week.
