There was no physical evidence as to who committed the crime. However, suspicion was cast upon two half-brothers, Henry Lee McCollum, 19, and Leon Brown, 15, who had recently moved to the area from New Jersey and were considered outsiders. Both men were considered mentally disabled. The brothers were arrested. After many long hours of threats and questioning, McCollum broke down and admitted to a story that he made up so the questioning would end. He thought he would then be able to go home. Afterwards, Mr. Brown was told of the confession and that he would be executed if he didn’t cooperate. They both signed the coerced confessions.

In an appeal, the death penalty was upheld for Mr. McCollum, but Mr. Brown’s sentence was changed to life in prison.
