This chapter explains the escape of Leroy Moton along Highway 80 after Viola Liuzzo was dead. Special Agents Robert Frye and Edward Bahlow interviewed the still-nervous Moton at the Selma Police Department, where he had been taken for questioning. Moton reviewed the events of the day and described what little he could remember about the attack. When he complained that his shoulder hurt, his jailers ignored him, and twenty-four hours passed before he received medical attention for a dislocated shoulder. Governor George Romney of Michigan had declared Monday and Tuesday days of state-wide mourning for Liuzzo. Gary Thomas Rowe was elated, loving every second as the central figure in a murder case that commanded both presidential and national attention.
