The Emmett Till marker in Money, Mississippi has been vandalized for the second time in two months. 

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old black boy who was kidnapped and lynched in 1955. Till was accused of whistling at a white woman, a statement that was much later retracted.

Fox News reported that a group of tourists discovered vinyl panels were peeled off of the back of the metal marker. Those panels contain photos and writings about Till.

Back in May someone used a blunt took to scratch the marker and a separate Till marker has been shot repeatedly.
