Attorney General Jim Hood has officially asked the U.S. Department of Justice to help in the investigation of the 1964 killings of three civil rights workers.
Hood's office has already turned over copies of FBI files to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
This comes after a group in Philadelphia asked for Justice to be sought in the case earlier this week.
Federal and state prosecutors will have determined if there is sufficient evidence to seek an indictment and bring the case to trial.
