FILE - In this June 15, 2014 file photograph, flowers top the memorial marker for Michael Schwerner, James Chaney and Andrew Goodman, civil rights workers who were killed in the "Mississippi Burning" case of 1964, outside the Mt. Zion United Methodist Church in Philadelphia, Miss., following a commemorative service in their honor. With additional criminal charges ruled out in the 1964 killings of the three civil rights workers, the community and state are left with harder ways to pursue justice in the case. Relatives of Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner said their deaths should prompt reflection about racism across Mississippi and the United States. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis, File)JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — The search for courtroom justice in the 1964 "Freedom Summer" killings of three civil rights workers in Mississippi's Neshoba County is over, more than a half century after they died, but some Mississippians and the relatives of the slain men say the search for another kind of justice still is still ongoing.
