Michael McDowell was a teenager who went missing alongside four other boys in 1978. Two men were charged in their deaths in 2011; one plead guilty while another was acquitted. A third suspect died before he could be charged. All five victims had evidently been burned alive. The five young men are collectively known as the Clinton Avenue Five.
