Outlaws Massacre and a Funeral

   'On July 4, 1979, the worst mass killing in Charlotte's history took place at a ramshackle two-room house in north Charlotte. Five members or associates of the Outlaws motorcycle club were slain in a shooting spree that probably lasted fewer than 10 seconds.  Witnesses disappeared, were intimidated by the biker culture or just refused to talk. The killers have not been apprehended.'- Leigh Dyer, staff

   Here's a look at one gang member's funeral - July 7, 1979.
   (Reader says the funeral was at Salisbury National Cemetery.)
