[From "Viola Liuzzo"]
Viola Fauver Gregg Liuzzo (April 11, 1925 March 25, 1965) was a left-wing "civil rights" activist from the U.S. state of Michigan and mother of five, who was killed by Ku Klux Klan members after the 1965 Selma to Montgomery marches in Alabama. One of the Klansmen in the car from which the shots were fired was a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Agent provocateur. Liuzzo's name is one of those inscribed on a civil rights memorial in the state capital. She died at the age of 39.
Liuzzo was under psychiatric care when she went to Selma. She was at one time registered to voted, but had never voted in an election. American segregationists pointed out she was demanding a right for Afro-American which she had never exercised. The coroner’s report described Liuzzo as “moderately obese white female” and noted she had needle marks in her arms likely from heroin use. She was also generally dirty, the coroner noted that her hands and feet were very dirty. Liuzzo was not wearing panties when killed, but she was not examined for signs of recent sexual activities.
