There may be some new developments in the case of missing atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair. She has been missing since 1995. A San Antonio Newspaper reported last week that O'Hair, her son, and grandaughter may have been killed in San Antonio, Texas and then buried 120 miles away on a ranch. Last weekend's massive search of the ranch turned up nothing.
But two men linked to the O'Hairs have been arrested. Neither has been charged with an offense related to the family's disappearance. Madalyn Murray O'Hair became famous in the '60s for her part in a Supreme Court battle that removed organized prayer from public schools.
22 Years ago, O'hair brought her argument to Roanoke. In this week's Virginia Newsreel, we visit the a debate between an atheist and evangelist.
