Grave of slain man finally gets headstone, decades later

There are 1 comment on the WBT-AM Charlotte story from Dec 30, 2017, titled Grave of slain man finally gets headstone, decades later. In it, WBT-AM Charlotte reports that:

When a young black man was found slain outside Griffin, Georgia, in 1983, his family was too traumatized to put a headstone on his grave. Not knowing who killed Timothy Wayne Coggins or if the killer might come back to vandalize a well-marked burial site, they held a hurried, fearful funeral and left it unadorned, his niece Heather Coggins said.
