According to a report by Reuters, the US government has reopened an investigation into the 1955 killing of black teenager Emmet Till in Mississippi. As first reported by the Associated Press on Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice sent a report to Congress earlier this year as part of an annual review of unsolved civil rights crimes. Till was beaten, shot and mutilated in August of 1955, in Money, Mississippi, four days after the black 14-year-old from Chicago had been accused of flirting with a white woman. The murder of Till was an event that helped to spark the nation's civil rights movement. The federal case regarding Till had been closed in 2007 after the Justice Department concluded it could no longer prosecute the case, however according to the report sent to Congress, new information regarding the case appears to have been discovered.
