Carolyn Bryant Donham has died.

The woman whose accusation set into motion the events that would result in the violent, inhumane death of 14-year-old Emmett Till, has left this life without accountability for her actions.

She died Tuesday evening in Westlake, Louisiana, according to the report filed Thursday in Calcasieu Parish Coroner’s Office in Louisiana.
