Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Joseph Edwards was last seen in Vidalia, LA; possible civil rights case.
His vehicle was found abandoned alongside the highway between Ferriday and Vidalia.
One of the primary suspects in the Edwards case was Concordia Parish Deputy Sheriff Frank DeLaughter, a Klan member who was convicted of civil-rights violations for beating a white man in the Ferriday jail in 1964. Edwards apparently had relationships with white women, an abhorrent notion to klansmen.
