ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke Thursday (April 17) at a memorial service to remember the three people shot and killed at Jewish centers in Kansas. Police have charged Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, who also goes by the name Glenn Miller. Cross was known by law enforcement and human rights groups as a former senior member of the Ku Klux Klan movement and someone who has repeatedly expressed hatred for Jewish people. Cross is accused of murdering Reat Underwood, 14, and his grandfather, 69-year-old William Corporon, both shot in the head in the parking lot outside the Jewish Community Center. A third victim, 53-year-old Terri LaManno, an occupational therapist, was shot dead minutes later at a Jewish retirement home about a mile away where she was visiting her mother. None of the people he is accused of killing was Jewish. During the interfaith service, Holder said hate crimes are an "affront" to the nation. "Every alleged hate crime, no matter the intended target, is an affront to who we are and who we have always been both as a country and as a people. These acts cannot be ignored," he said. Funeral services were also held on Thursday for LaManno. Funeral services for Corporon and Underwood will be held on Friday at the Methodist church the two attended.
