See my book Letters & Numbers for more information on the death of Emmett Till.
This news comes 13-days before the 77-year anniversary of his birth in Chicago, the city divided into 77-neighborhoods, and a city which is very Jewish.
Judaism = 77; Zionist = 77; Theater = 77
United States = 77
As for the case being reopened after 63-years...
Rabbinic Judaism = 63
And today's date is right for a very 'Chicago' story.
7/12/18 = 7+12+18 = 37 (Chicago = 37)
7/12/2018 = 7+12+20+18 = 57 (Jews = 57) (Scottish Rite = 57)
Emmett Louis Till = 61 (61, the 18th prime)
Race = 18 (Here we are in 2018, emphasis on '18)
If you don't know, Emmett Till was supposedly killed for whistling at a white woman.
