In a recurring nightmare that plagued Cecil Price, Wayne Roberts was a member of the Black Knights of Voodoo.

In the context of the dream, Price knew Roberts personally.

Literary CommentEdit

Wayne Roberts is based on Alton Wayne Roberts (1938-1999), who murdered Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner, and then helped shoot and beat James Chaney to death. Like Price, Roberts was convicted of violating the three men's civil rights.
