Wrongfully imprisoned for more than 40 years

At 18 years old, Kevin Strickland was arrested for a triple murder after three people were fatally shot in a Kansas City home.

Kevin maintained his innocence from the beginning.

From the start, the case against him was weak. The “evidence” tying him to the murders has only deteriorated over time…

  • The only surviving victim stated that detectives pressured her into identifying Kevin. She later attempted multiple times to recant her statement.
  • The fingerprint identified on the gun was not a match to Kevin’s.
  • The two men who pleaded guilty to the murders insist that Kevin was not with them.
  • The prosecutor’s office that tried Kevin in 1978 now believes he is innocent.

Two men who admitted to being part of the murders have served their time in prison and are now free. Yet, even with all these developments, 62-year-old Kevin Strickland is still sitting in jail for a crime he did not commit.

Kevin should have been able to enjoy his life. Instead, he unjustly spent more than 40 years behind bars at the Western Missouri Correctional Center.

If exonerated, Kevin will have served one of the longest wrongful imprisonments in U.S. history.

Because of this mistake, he missed out on his youth. He missed out on his daughter growing up. He missed out on time with his father, who has now passed. And he is missing out on time with his elderly mother and family.

While incarcerated, Kevin has suffered from multiple heart attacks and high blood pressure. His ability to stand is deteriorating and he needs a wheelchair to get around. He may not have much time left on earth.

He should have never been convicted, but there is still time to right this wrong! Missouri’s attorney general must correct this grave error and allow Kevin to live some of his life before it’s too late.
