Thousands Have Donated $1.6 Million to Innocent Man Freed From Prison After 43-Year Wrongful Conviction
An innocent man who served 43 years in prison for a triple murder he did not commit was finally released from a Missouri penitentiary. Kevin Strickland was put into prison after a hunch and a wrongful accusation by an eyewitness. When the witness passed, she said it was her will to see Strickland be freed, which prompted a re-examination of his case leading to his release. Since his release, a GoFundMe campaign was launched—and it has raised $1.65 million from caring strangers.
