Carolyn Bryant Donham, the white woman at the center of the Emmett Till lynching nearly 70 years ago, has died.
The 88-year-old had been battling cancer and was in hospice care, Mississippi Today reported Thursday.
Donham had been accused of setting off the 1955 lynching of the 14-year-old.
Her death comes after a Mississippi grand jury declined to indict her in August last year over Till’s death.
