This 2010 photo provided by Mike Small shows Willie Louis at his home in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood. Louis, a witness who went into hiding after testifying at the Emmett Till trial in 1955 about hearing the lynching victim's screams, died July 18, 2013, in a Chicago suburban hospital. He was 76. After the trial, Louis fled his native Mississippi for Chicago. He changed his name and told no one of his connection to the case, not even his future wife. (AP Photo/Courtesy of Mike Small)
