Neuman Britton, the pastor of a white supremacist church who was said to be next in line to lead the racist Aryan Nations organization, has died. Britton, believed to be 75, died Saturday in San Diego of complications from cancer, according to Tom Metzger, founder of the White Aryan Resistance, and a posting on the Aryan Nations Web site. The FBI and the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks racist organizations, confirmed his death. An FBI spokeswoman, however, said Britton died Friday.
