West Allis, WI - Family and friends of Corey Stingley organized a rally outside VJ's Food Mart, Dec. 15, where the 16-year-old was strangled by white vigilantes one year ago. Supporters demanded charges be filed against the people responsible for killing Stingley.

In December 2012, three white adult vigilantes accused Stingley, who was Black, of theft and strangled him to death. A year later, no charges have been filed against the killers. A John Doe investigation produced a report containing "enough evidence for a conviction," according to Stingley’s father Craig. Still, there has been no word from the Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm about pursuing charges.

Activists are planning a call-in day to District Attorney Chisholm on December 30 to tell him that Corey Stingley deserves justice. "The decision to prosecute the killers lies entirely with Chisholm. We know if the race roles were reversed the killers would have faced trial and been locked up long ago," said Hilary Wilson, a supporter of Corey Stingley.
