Roy Brown Exonerated

03.05.07

Roy Brown spent 15 years in New York prisons for a murder he didn't commit. In 2003, he requested police documents from his prison cell and learned that an alternate suspect had been overlooked. Brown wrote that man a letter and the man committed suicide days after receiving the letter. Now, DNA testing has proven that the alternate suspect actually committed the crime, and Brown was officially exonerated today in a Cayuga County, New York courtroom.
