A Story of Innocence
Justice for Leroy Evans
AFTER 42 YEARS,
LEROY EVANS IS COMING HOME!!!
42 years of innocence
On November 11, 1980, Emily Leo, “the Avon Lady,” was brutally murdered in Chester, PA. The police arrested a young father, 23-year-old Leroy Evans, for the crime. Despite a lack of any evidence, the damning words of a kid from the neighborhood, Anthony Jones, convinced the jury that Leroy had brutally murdered the beloved local businesswoman.
Then, in 2016, Anthony Jones finally told the truth: he alone murdered Mrs. Leo.
“A Story of Innocence” is dedicated to bringing justice not only for
Leroy,but also for Emily Leo.
Two lives were destroyed the day she died in 1980.
Thank you to everyone who has followed Leroy’s story and amplified his voice.
The hard work of his attorney, his family, and the PA Attorney General’s Conviction Integrity Unit have finally paid off
On September 30, 2022, Leroy Evans will walk out of the Delaware County Courthouse a free man!
