My Story

On the morning of January 31, 1975, I woke up in Greenville, South Carolina. It was the last time I saw that city–or any other–as a truly free man.

A little more than a year later, a jury convicted me of two notorious murders. A judge sent me to South Carolina’s Death Row.

More than four decades later, I have managed to avoid execution, but I’m still fighting every day to tell the true story, the one that will clear my name once and for all.

In 2019, this story will be included in the new podcast Murder, etc.

In the time since my conviction, I have achieved a number of academic goals and learned to paint. If you would like to see my work, please take a look at my portfolio on my paintings page.

I am a blessed man with a long fight still ahead. I appreciate your interest in my story and my struggle to uncover the truth about what happened in Greenville in 1975.
