Killing of Richard Marshall in Georgia in 1933
Richard Marshall, 43, a farmer, was killed in 1933 in Baker County, Georgia. Marshall was found hanging from a tree with nine bullet holes in his body. Marshall’s body was found in close proximity to where the body of T. J. Thomas, who had been lynched days earlier, was discovered. An essay on this case, researched and authored by a CRRJ student, is available on request.
