DOJ Reopens Investigation of Emmett Till Killing

The federal government has reopened its investigation into the slaying of Emmett Till, the black teenager whose brutal killing in Mississippi helped inspire the civil rights movement more than 60 years ago. A book last year quotes a white woman, Carolyn Donham, as acknowledging that she wasn’t truthful when she testified that Till grabbed her, whistled and made sexual advances at a store in 1955.
