According to the Daily Mail, Carolyn Bryant Donham is 88 years old and living in Kentucky. A Daily Mail reporter asked her son, Thomas Bryant, 71, if his mother would comment on Till. He reportedly shook his head no with his mother standing behind him. The outlet claims she is legally blind and receives hospice care in her home.
In August of 1955, 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant falsely accused 14-year-old Emmett Till of whistling at her in a store. Bryant’s accusation led to him being abducted, tortured, and murdered by Donham’s then-husband, Roy Bryant, and his half-brother, J.W. Milam.
The report comes just weeks after the discovery of an unserved arrest warrant for Till’s accuser.
