My records indicated that Evans was shot with Cynthia Scott. That might be the protest that I mentioned in the other thread.

Just a word to Urbanoutdoors, try to keep your topics in one thread, having a zillion of them scattered all over and hard to reference stuff.
This thread should have been under the other one you started about Scott or the DPD.
You don't get extra points for lots of threads :-)

I didn't look at them with full captions if I had realized the timeline i would have realized the coincidence of the dates. My Bad.

Psip,

I have read accounts of the Scott case in at least 2 books and there is no mention of a second person being shot. There is mention of protests though, on July 13th 1963.
