From sorrow, to shock to activism                                                  Back
On February 7, 2001 the world of Larry and Linda McCoy came crashing down around them. Their 18 year-old daughter Robin, a Jackson State freshman, was pronounced dead at the scene of a police roadblock, her cousin, Dana Lee, 14, lay critically injured and dying beside her. What awful chain of events had led to such tragic ending? The two young ladies had unknowingly accepted a ride from an acquaintance in what turned out to be a stolen car. Mississippi police initiated a high speed pursuit, which soon exceed 110mph and ended tragically at the roadblock. The McCoys no longer maintain a website. [Updated September 23, 2014]
