article imageKKK Leader in Louisiana Indicted In Death of Oklahoma Woman

By Carol Forsloff     Feb 19, 2009 in Crime
For the most part the Ku Klux Klan is underground and dismissed by people in Louisiana. That’s in spite of newspaper hype. But it still evokes shock and awe as occurred when a woman was killed in late 2008.
Raymond “Chuck” Foster, age 44, and his son, Shane Foster and a fellow by the name of Frankie Stafford were indicted for the murder of 43-year-old Cynthia Lynch of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Another suspect, Danielle Jones, has been charged with one count of accessory after the fact.
Prosecutors declare that those charged with this crime will be given maximum sentences if found guilty. These KKK members made national headlines when the case was first reported in November at the time eight people were arrested. Authorities at the time said Lynch had a need to belong to groups and was recruited over the Internet. She took a bus to Slidell, Louisiana, after which she was taken to a campsite in the woods for the initiation ceremonies. The KKK members shaved her head, took her through 24 hours of drills, but then Lynch decided not to go through with the initiation. Reportedly that’s when Foster shot her without warning after pushing her to the ground.
The suspects should be arraigned within the next 30 days, as reported in the news today.
They will be assigned different judges.
The KKK is seldom in the news anymore and not talked about in Louisiana much either. No one whispers about night riders or getting involved in a vigilante group. Even David Duke has become milder, considering last year, when interviewed about the election, he considered Barack Obama’s candidacy no worse than that of Hillary Clinton or John McCain.
