Black Teen's Death Is Being Compared To Emmett Till's

The death of Qwawan "Bobby" Charles is being compared to the famous Emmett Till tragedy.

The 15-year-old was found in a sugar cane field in Louisiana last week after he was reported missing.

No specific details about his death have been released, but local sheriffs are investigating the suspicious circumstances. 

Quawan appears to have drowned and had water in his lungs, but his family disagrees with drowning being the cause of death since his face was disfigured when found. 

The child's mother has released the photo of him, and it has a strong resemblance to what Emmett Till looked like when he was killed. 

Quawan's family has yet to see a police report or autopsy report.  

His family has launched a GoFundMe to cover cost of independent autopsy.

Emmett Till's death in 1955 by lynching sparked the Civil Rights Movement.
