The Mississippi attorney general's office said Carolyn Bryant Donham's memoir and arrest warrant aren't enough "new evidence" to reopen Emmett Till's case.
The woman at the center of Emmett Till's death dictated “I Am More Than A Wolf Whistle” more than a decade ago. It represents the first time she has spoken openly about the case.
The House's lopsided 42-3 historic passage of an anti-lynching bill named for Emmett Till was opposed by Texas Rep. Chip Roy, who has previously called the racist vigilante act "a metaphor for justice.”
U.S. Justice Department reopened the investigation into the horrific lynching of Emmett Till in 2018 after a book, The Blood of Emmett Till, quoted Carolyn Bryant as saying she lied when she claimed Emmett whistled at her and made sexual advances. But on Monday, the probe was closed with no new charges being filed.
He wanted to see the FBI approach the Day case with the same attention and effort as the case of Gabby Petito. According to Rush, the attention and effort in the Petito case were appropriate, but other missing people deserve the same measures.
On Sept. 2, the Emmett Till Center discovered that another historical marker paying tribute to the slain-teen was tampered with as the sign had been toppled over.
