Does anyone know where Emmet Till accusers and murderers, Carolyn and Roy Bryant are buried?

I've read an article suggesting that Emmet Till, a young Black American boy who was tortured and murdered by 2 Racist White Men in 1955, was innocent.

I've also seen the heartbreaking photo of Emmet's disfugured face at his wake and feel that the bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Bryant should be exhumed and moved to a prison gravesite considering the audacity of their crimes.

    Carolyn Bryant is still alive. About a decade ago she gave an interview to a historian working on the case where she admitted that her testimony had been false and that Till hadn't done anything which deserved the treatment he received. Bryant was abused by her husband before and after the incident and her fear of him probably helped motivate her to lie.
