New DNA Test Proves Death Row Inmate Executed in 2017 Was Innocent As He Maintained To The Last
A death row inmate may be exonerated after DNA evidence suggested his innocence — four years after he was executed.

Ledell Lee, 51, was given a lethal injection on April 20 2017 by the state of Arkansas for the 1993 murder of 26-year-old Debra Reese.

Lee maintained his innocence since his arrest until his death and fought for 12 years to clear his name, pleading with a judge to test DNA found on a shoe to be tested.


Sadly, Lee’s plea for the DNA to be tested was rejected because he took too long to ask for the test and his execution went ahead as scheduled.

His family have not stopped fighting to prove his innocence and in 2020, Lee's sister filed a lawsuit against the state to test the DNA.

Terrible news if this turns out to be the case.
