Feds May Take New Look at Buddy Holly Crash

The Feb. 3, 1959 plane crash that killed rock stars Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson may get another look from federal investigators following pleas from a New England man who believes that blame was focused too heavily on the pilot, NBC News reported. L.J. Coon petitioned the National Transportation Safety Board to review the crash, according to a report in the Globe-Gazette, a newspaper published in North Iowa where the plane went down.

A "searing" Justice Department report has found police in Ferguson, Missouri, disproportionately targeted blacks, creating a "highly toxic environment defined by mistrust and resentment," Attorney General Eric Holder said Wednesday as he unveiled the report. The agency has also announced it won't prosecute former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of an unarmed black 18-year-old that led to weeks of protests. The decision in the Aug. 9 shooting had been expected, in part because of the high legal standard needed for a federal civil rights prosecution.
