Emmett Till: Woman Whose Accusation Led to Lynching Will Not Be Charged

Mississippi Grand Jury Declines to Indict Carolyn Bryant Donham Over Death of Black Teenager Nearly 70 Years Ago


BBC 12 AUG 2022





Emmett Till was killed in 1955.



A grand jury in Mississippi has declined to indict the white woman whose accusation set off the lynching of Black teenager Emmett Till nearly 70 years ago, despite revelations about an unserved arrest warrant and a newly revealed memoir by the woman, a prosecutor said on Tuesday.




Carolyn Bryant Donham


A grand jury in Leflore county in the north-western part of the state considered evidence and testimony regarding Carolyn Bryant Donhamís involvement in the kidnapping and death of Till, the local district attorney, Dewayne Richardson, said in a news release.

After hearing more than seven hours of testimony from investigators and witnesses, the grand jury determined that there was not sufficient evidence to indict Donham, Richardson said. The panel also considered charges of kidnapping and manslaughter.

The news that the grand jury had declined to charge Donham makes it increasingly unlikely that she will ever be prosecuted for her role in the events that led to Tillís death.

A group searching the basement of the Leflore county courthouse in June discovered the unserved arrest warrant charging Donham, her then-husband, Roy Bryant, and brother-in-law, JW Milam, in Tillís abduction in 1955. While the men were arrested and acquitted on murder charges in Tillís subsequent slaying, Donham, 21 at the time and 87 now, was never taken into custody.

In an unpublished memoir obtained last month by the Associated Press, Donham said she was unaware of what would happen to the 14-year-old Till, who lived in Chicago and was visiting relatives in Mississippi when he was abducted, killed and tossed in a river. She accused him of making lewd comments and grabbing her while she worked alone at a family store in Money, Mississippi.

Donham said in the manuscript that the men brought Till to her in the middle of the night for identification but that she tried to help the youth by denying it was him. Despite being abducted at gunpoint from a family home by Roy Bryant and Milam, Till identified himself to the men, she claimed.

Tillís battered, disfigured body was found days later in a river, where it was weighed down with a heavy metal fan. The decision by his mother, Mamie Till Mobley, to open Tillís casket for his funeral in Chicago demonstrated the horror of what had happened and added fuel to the civil rights movement.
