Henry McCollum and Leon Brown
Organized by: Matt Greaves
I would like to help raise money for Henry McCollum and Leon Brown who spent the last 30 years of their lives in prison for a crime they did not commit. Their North Carolina conviction was recently overturned after DNA evidence exonerated them from a 1983 rape and murder. DNA evidence pointed to another suspect who lived within a close proximity of the crime scene. McCollum was 19 at the time, and Brown was 15, they are now 50 and 46 years old. The state of North Carolina stole 30 years of their lives for a crime they did not commit. Money will never make what happened to these two guys go away but hopefully it will help them get their lives back on track once they are released later today (9/3/2014).
