Immunity Sought in Emmett Till Probe
The son of a black man who reportedly accompanied the white men who abducted and killed Emmett Till in 1955 is asking officials to grant his father immunity in the reopened case. Johnny Thomas said Thursday that his father, Henry Lee Loggins, maintains that he had nothing to do with the infamous lynching. But he thinks that if he is granted immunity, Loggins might tell more than he has so far."He's saying that he wasn't (with them). I'm crediting that to, if he was with them, I can imagine the fear that he was under," Thomas, mayor of the small town of Glendora, told The Associated Press.
