Justice Department reopens investigation into 63-year-old murder of Emmett Till
by Eliott C. McLaughlin and Emanuella Grinberg

(CNN) - The investigation of the murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till, barbarous even in an era in which blacks in the South were subjected to untold viciousness, has been reopened based on "new information," according to a US Justice Department report to Congress.
 
The 1955 slaying was listed in a March report among "activities" the department was pursuing under the 2007 unsolved civil rights crime act that bears Emmett's name.

The act paves the way for the department to "expeditiously investigate" unsolved pre-1980 civil rights murders.

Emmett's crime? He had been accused -- we now know, falsely -- of flirting with and making advances at then-21-year-old carolyn bryant, who, along with her husband, Roy, owned a grocery store in Money, Mississippi.

Emmett had traveled there from Chicago to visit his great-uncle, who lived in the area.

curious.  a face-saving measure for the justice department under Trump/Sessions?

What do they hope to find now?  isn't nearly everyone dead who was a person of interest?  The one white woman who lied on Till just "fessed up" last year.

So now what?

Glad they are doing this.  Stunned that they are doing this under this administration.  Isn't she still alive?  I bet others are too.  Throw they dusty asses in jail.  Let them die there.
