Till’s mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, died in 2003 at age 81, still holding out hope for a rehearing of the case. Her book, Death of Innocence: The Story of the Hate Crime that Changed America, was published by Random House that year… When the grand jury considered the case in 2006, Carolyn Bryant was the one surviving party of interest. In 2017, author Timothy Tyson (in his book The Blood of Emmett Till), revealed that Carolyn Bryant had confessed that she lied when she said Till had made advances toward her, saying “That part’s not true.”
