On Friday, September 27, at 12:30pm, the friends, family, and supporters of Leroy Evans will hold a rally at the Delaware County Courthouse demanding JUSTICE FOR LEROY.
As in Leroy’s case, it was irresponsible of the prosecution to overemphasize this “cleaned up” storyline, as no other evidence existed to explain why two boys had no blood on them after purportedly stabbing someone 27 times! In Leroy’s case, Jones’ original, and damning testimony – that Leroy bludgeoned Emily Leo with an iron – was wholly unsupported by the evidence. There was no blood inside or outside, on Leroy’s belongings, or on his clothes. There wasn’t even an iron! Yet the prosecutors repeatedly constructed the story of a bloody crime scene, and Leroy’s seemingly superhuman ability to clean it!
- why there was no blood at the crime scene;
- why the supposed murder weapon was not found, nor is it in evidence;
- why the testimony that led to Leroy’s unjust imprisonment 39 years ago is not supported by any of the evidence;
- why Anthony Jones’ 73-page sworn testimony matches all of the evidence, exonerates Leroy, yet is ignored by the District Attorney
No one is demanding innocence without evidence; we are just confident that the evidence, when reviewed, will clearly prove Leroy’s innocence!
So many of you have come to know Leroy and his family by reading about his case, following it in the news or on social media, and adding your voice to the growing chorus crying out for the case to be investigated. As ever, we are raising our voices loud enough for the District Attorney find the decency to open an investigation into the original case.
Everyone matters.You, Alice, Leroy. Every voice matters.Together, we can make sure Justice is delivered for an innocent man.
