Killing of Felix Hall in Georgia in 1941
Pvt. Felix Hall, 19, was found dead in 1941 hanging from a tree near the Fort Benning military base in Chattahoochee County, Georgia. Hall was marked absent without leave four weeks before his body was found; he was later listed as a deserter. Although an investigation by military authorities claimed suicide as a possibility of Hall’s death, an F.B.I report supported a finding that Hall had tried to survive the hanging. An essay on this case, researched and authored by a CRRJ student, is available on request.
