October 1946, Clanton, Mississippi
Pete Banning was Clanton, Mississippis favorite sona decorated World War II hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church.Then one cool October morning he rose early, drove into town, and committed a shocking crime. Pete's only statement about itto the sheriff, to his lawyers, to the judge, to the jury, and to his familywas: I have nothing to say. He was not afraid of death and was willing to take his motive to the grave.
