Imprisoned ex-Klansman Edgar Ray Killen supposedly bragged that authorities never searched his property, which may contain evidence including a gun that could implicate others in the 1964 KKK slayings of three civil rights workers, the Jackson Clarion Ledger reported.

The paper reported that ex-inmate Larry Ellis, who shared a cell next to  Killen, recently disclosed to the FBI the information about Killen bragging . The three civil rights workers, James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, were killed on June 21, 1964 in Philadelphia, Miss.

Killen,84, is serving 60 years for a 2005 manslaughter conviction in connection with the murders. He is appealing the conviction, the paper said.
