I came across this article today and I had never heard of this young boy or this case. http://www.thegrio.com/news/was-the-youngest-person-ever-executed-innocent.php From the article linked: "It's 1944, and police escort a 14-year-old boy into the death chamber. He stands just 5'1 and weighs a mere 95 pounds. He is so small in stature that dictionaries need to be stacked on the seat of the electric chair so that when he sits in it his head reaches the height of the electrodes. His chains are loose around his narrow ankles. This young boy is about to be the youngest person ever to be executed in the history of the United States. Before there was a Troy Davis there was George Junius Stinney, Jr. and the state of South Carolina electrocuted him." I'm wondering if any fellow WS'ers are familiar with the case? Were there ever any other suspects? Any theories? Off to see if I can find any more info.
