    WOODVILLE, Miss. - Family members say a man found Friday hanging from a tree in rural Mississippi had returned home to fight for his family's land.

    The body of 52-year-old Roy Veal was discovered in Wilkinson County, relatives said.

    Warren Strain, spokesman of the Mississippi Department of Public Safety, said the body was discovered about midday in a wooded area of the county near Woodville. Authorities declined to identify the man pending notification of relatives.

    It was in a post I made on the thread The Good Bad and Ugly....Therious there are white folk that come up missing and are not found white folk that are strangely found in certain Black sections of town dead as a hammer...we touch them up and they touch us up Mississippi is still a violent place to live. I love it to death though....

    :(

    This is very sad to hear. Just when you think that type of thing is over it reoccurs.

    The question is:

    What are we going to do about it?

    I know we are not just going to let this go on and happen. Are we strong enough to stand up for our brothers or not?

    I will read the article and be back with more.
