Emmett Till’s glass-topped casket that showed evidence of his death by lynching in 1955 turned up last week in the storage shed of an Alsip cemetery embroiled in a grave reselling scheme.

Now planners of a Civil Rights museum in Philadelphia, Miss., about three hours from where the 14-year-old Chicago teen was kidnapped and killed, are asking Till’s relatives to add it to their collection.

Wilmer Amina Carter, a California state assemblywoman with roots in Mississippi, would like to include it at the museum, according to her spokesman Eldred Marshall.

Cook County sheriff’s investigators have shut the cemetery to the public, declaring it a crime scene.
