The historical Emmet Till Casket is at the AA Rayner & Son Funeral Home in Chicago. This is where the civil rights, martyrs casket is now located. There the casket will be restored and moved to a new location.
The family chose this funeral home partially because that is where the slain teenager lied in state after he was murdered in 1955.
The current owners of Burr oak cemetery were the casket was left to rot are directly responsible for this act of disrespect to the black community. The corporation is Perpetua Inc.
Charles Childs Jr is the co owner of the Funeral Home AA Rayner and Son.
The fact that his funeral home holds this historical relic should not bring Mr. Childs immunity from investigation in the IFDA Preneed Trust Ponzi Scheme. (see previous post).
Charles Childs Jr, was president of the Illinois Funeral Directors Association Trust Fund tanked in 2006 and 2007.
Reports now are that the fund, has now lost 100 million dollars.
