Tifani Fisher recounts his lyching: âA mob came (to the jailhouse) and demanded the keys and the keys were given and they dragged this young man out,. They took turns beating himâ¦and as one group got tired, they brought in another group. They beat him to deathâ¦and they began to dismember him."â¦AndrÃ© Chung/ICTJ
