NBJC held a national press conference in Clarksdale, Mississippi, with the family of Marco McMillian and Parks & Crump law firm, calling for a full federal investigation into the Marco McMillian case. NBJC Executive Director and CEO Sharon Lettman-Hicks called the press conference after the release of McMillian's autopsy, and the failure of local authorities to respond to basic requests by the family. All parties involved are upset at the lack of action and concern being paid to the homicide of Marco McMillian.
