Till memorial vandalized

Till was killed in 1955 after he reportedly whistled at a white woman while visiting relatives in Mississippi. His body was dumped in the Tallahatchie River.

The missing sign marked the spot where Till's body was pulled from the water. It was one of eight put up last year, after Mississippi officials adopted a resolution apologizing to Till's family.

Two white men were acquitted of Till's murder. They later confessed to the crime in a magazine interview.
