Herman Frank Cash (July 25, 1918 – February 7, 1994) was suspected to have been a fourth conspirator in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing of 1963.
Cash was married to Myrtle Cash and had two children, both of whom were in their twenties, Clem and Dale. He was a truck driver for Dixie-Ohio Express Company. Cash was a member of United Klans of America, a Ku Klux Klan organization.
Although officially named by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as a suspect as early as 1965, Cash was never formally charged with any crime. He maintained his innocence and passed a polygraph test given by the FBI. Acquaintances claimed that Cash was too nervous to be capable of committing a crime of the magnitude of the bombing.
