The grave site of lynching victim Emmett Till is seen Friday, July 10, 2009, at the Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, Ill., the same cemetery where four workers are accused of digging up bodies to resell plots. While Till's grave site was not disturbed, Cook County investigators found his original iconic glass-topped casket rusting in a shack at the cemetery. The 14-year-old Chicagoan was killed in 1955 after reportedly whistling at a white woman during a visit to his uncle's house in Mississippi. Nearly 100,000 people visited his glass-topped casket during a four-day public viewing in Chicago. Images of his battered body helped spark the civil rights movement. When Till was exhumed in 2005 during an investigation of his death, he was reburied in a new casket. The original casket was supposed to be kept for a planned memorial to Till. (AP Photo/M.
