Back in '67 it was. So fifty years ago now; that qualifies as history, I guess. So why did Billie Joe McAllister jump off the Tallahatchie Bridge? Us old-timers have never forgotten, but I guess it doesn't mean much to folk under about sixty. We talked about it endlessly back in those times but could never really figure what had happened. Never got to the bottom of the thing, though a few had strong opinions one way or another. Some thought he was pushed. Some reckoned he was being blackmailed. And what was it that he and his girlfriend had thrown off the bridge? Perhaps modern forensic methods could help, even though the old bridge has been replaced. I think it is overdue that the CCCCT reviewed the evidence. But maybe you have your own ideas about it all. Let me have your thoughts!
