The historical sign marking where Emmett Till's body was found is now riddled with bullet holes.
The damage was discovered last week in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi. A film student from North Carolina was scouting taping locations when he found the sign. According to WJTV, it had been shot more than 40 times.
Till was killed in 1955 while visiting family in Mississippi, allegedly for flirting with an older, married white woman.
