Emmett Till Case Closed

In 1955 Emmett Till was brutally murdered. The case was once closed but it had gotten reopened again. Again it had closed again. Emmett Till was murdered by Milam and Bryant. He got taken from his home and was beaten in a barn where neighbors heard his cries. He was then taken and dumped in a river pulled down by a cotton gin and wire.

What do some of our High School students think about the case being closed?

“It is not right at all. When he was murdered it was big, however I don’t think it will ever be opened again.” freshman Paige Ouwenga stated.

Another high school student thinks that it is disappointing.

“Its dumb and disapointing because I think that there are still clues that can be found to justify his murder.” junior Faith WIlkinson stated.

Another student feels like his murder is not justified.

“I’m mad because someone else made him look guilty, when all he was saying was saying hi to a white person.” sophomore Molly Wilkinson stated.
