This photograph shows the corpse of William Brown, who was accused of raping a white woman named Agnes Loebeck in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1919. Despite the efforts of local police to protect Brown in his cell at the Douglas County Court House, a mob of about 4,000 citizens besieged the building on 28 September, eventually setting it on fire in a frenzied rush to capture Brown.
