    (January 24, 1931-September 1, 1994)
    Born in Ruleville, Tennessee
    Owner of Bryant’s Grocery Store
    Murderer of Emmett Till
    He kidnapped, tortured and murdered 14 year old Emmett Till because Till allegedly whistled at his wife.
    He killed Till by beating him, gouging his eyes out, shooting him in the head and throwing him in a river with a cotton gin fan tied to his body with barbed wire.
    He was acquitted by an all white jury.
    After he and his co-defendant were found not guilty, he admitted to an interviewer that he had indeed killed Till, and lied under oath.
    He never expressed any remorse.
    Before he died, he complained about not making enough money off of the Till incident and was annoyed that it had ruined his life.
    After his trial his store was shut down due to lack of business.
    He made a statement defending a klansman who was convicted of killing a black man.
    His actions helped bring awareness to Southern racism.
    He is dead.
    His victim's mother outlived him.
