Sorry but he should have got the death penalty. Just like eddie marshal that killed my cousin. All he got was life without parole. Heather donnell was an innocent young woman that took care of her son that was born with a brain tumor At least either of them won't make it out of where their at.

It astounds me that so many mis-informed, illerate people chose to comment about a situation they know so obviously little about. If any of you morons really wanted to know the truth, check out some court transcripts, try to get another side to the story. The woman had as many as 5 peoples' DNA on her body,the only one they could identify that was not an officer at the scene was Sam Freeman, so DUH, who do you think the podunk cops in Poplar Bluff are going to pursue. A man who fought for this country in Iraq, who was a loving father and husband and much loved brother and son. The appeals court recognized the injustice and reversed his conviction, but of course he is still waiting for a trial in front of the supreme court. Everyone wants justice for the victim, as well they should, but what about the ridiculous INJUSTICE being perpetrated on an innocent man and his family. If this trial took place in any other city there never would have been a conviction in the first place. I'm sorry but Poplar Bluff is being ran by a bunch of inbred morons.

I watched the Laura Wynn Murder coverage on Investigation Discovery. It was very informative, however, it didn't cover the outcome of the killer's sentence. I don't believe in the death penalty, because, once you're put to death, you're out of luck to have the sentence reversed. I do believe in life without parole, which keeps the perps in prison for serious crimes. Been watching the cost of putting a prisoner to death, versus the cost of life inprionment and the difference is insane! We're all hurting with the varous monies spent by this presidential appointee; the change of the sentencing would cover the cost of inprisonment.

I'm sorry you have a relative who is in the penal system; I've worked there for years and it's never an easy burden to carry. As for your relative having been in the service, I am married to a service man- retired- and have known several people who were convicted of crimes, while in the military; that doesn't make you a criminal, nor an upstanding citizen; there is good and bad in every facet of society.

If you truly believe your relative is innocent, there is the innocense project and perhaps you can interest them in the prospect of getting Mr. Freeman vindicated.

I am Samuel Freeman's daughter and I really don't think that some of these comments are necessary. I understand that everyone is entitled to their opinion however I don't believe it is appropriate for anyone to talk about him dying in prison. And as far as the Forensic Files show I watched it and I can tell everyone one that that show was one sided and so off from the correct and right details of his life and was supposedly happened that it was offensive. Now I will say that my father was and is a good man and I know that he did not committed the horrible crime he is accused of. I would also like to say that I feel for the family of Laura and I hope that one day the correct person is punished for what happened.
Hello, Samuel Freeman's daughter; I am so sorry you will be readins unpleasant things, here, but they're not aimed at you; we have no power over who our relatives are, or what they do. As your father, Mr Freeman must be very loved by you and I will keep you in my prayers

I also just watched the episode of Nightmare Next Door on Investigation Discovery about the Laura Wynn case. I'm not surprised people think he's guilty, the show was completely one sided. They failed to mention the other DNA evidence they found, the fact that the bartender is a moronic flake, that Sam's mother told the police he was at home at the time of the murder, unfortunately she passed away prior to the arrest so she couldnt testify to this. No other patrons in the bar stepped forward to say there was an argument between Laura and Sam, there was some discrepancy with the tissue that was found, and most importantly among the other DNA evidence they found at the scene was a pubic hair of an African American male!! Sam, aka Andrew, won an appeal so apparently his friends and family are not the only people who see a problem with the mentally challenged Deputy Fife wannabes running the Poplar Bluff police Dept. As for the bartender, she sounds like a desperate-for-attention, pathetic lowlife who just wanted to feel important for once in her miserable life. They mentioned Sam's service in Iraq in passing but he, just like every other soldier in the US military, gave a huge portion of his life fighting for the rights of every American, and he has sat in prison for years even after winning an appeal. Someone needs to hold the morons in PB office accountable for their ridiculously shoddy police work, and when Sam finally wins his next appeal I hope he sues the hell out of EVERYONE involved in this case.

I read the indictment court file (62 pages long you can Google it) against Sam Freeman. He was quite young when the murder took place way before he married or served in the military. Anyway, there was a lot of evidence pointing to him as the murderer, not just DNA. His DNA was on the hose that was used to strangle Laura. His DNA was found elsewhere on her body. Her injuries and blunt round bruises matched the empty bottle he took with him that night. He had the bottle after 13 years and there were confirmed blood stains inside the bottle. In his initial police statement he said he walked home and went to sleep but a neighbor of Laura's saw a man fitting Sam's description run into Laura's apt. There were several more witnesses at the VFW that night that saw and heard Sam & Laura's fight. One took a lie detector test but Sam would not take a test. So SAMs family Members, are u saying that all of the evidence against Sam is crap?????

Thank you for your prayers however I believe you will be prying for the wrong reasons. I actually do have a choice who my family is because Sam is not my biological father he is actually my step father however I consider him my one and only father. When I was growing up he was my daddy and my biological father never wanted me and on the occasion he did want anything to do with me it was all lies. I begged my dad to adopt me and that is why I carried his name until I was married. I know my father and I know what kind of person he was and I know in my heart he is a good man and he did not do what he is accused of. I have stood by my dad since all this started and I will continue to do so in the future. I am proud he is my father and I love him with all my heart. Because I feel this way and have never been ashamed of him I have been put down and called nasty things and even denied work but I am not letting anyone put me down about it any more. The Lord know the truth and my dad will be set free and judged by the one who know the truth.

The bottle found at our home was not the same bottle. It was a bottle in my cousins room and his blood was on it because he put ink from a high lighter along with water and he scratched his hand when he put the ink in and as for the description of him the actual description was a man with curly hair and as most know my dad was in the military and didn't really have hair.

My mother divorced him because my mother felt that with the sentence he received it was better for her to move on with her life and my father agreed. He has never thought he was guilty. Just imagine how you would feel if you significant other was ripped away from you and the only contact you could have is phone calls and visits where you could only hold hand.

Sorry for the pain to his family, but he did it. Most likely, he has killed others or tried, but this time he was caught by new technology. Most serial killers are the kind that you not suspect them of such heinous crimes.

His wife was wise to move on, as it must have been very painful to her.

The second point about the bottle was that it is the type he buys. He was not in the military at the time of her murder.

To Miss Informed:
First, please go back to school and learn to spell, secondly you are so NOT informed its really pretty sad. Sam (Andrew) Freeman has NEVER been charged with any type of crime, and if someone said otherwise they only came forward when this ridiculous crap came up. Why, do you think, because just like the mentally challenged bartender, they saw a chance to get some attention.

To Starfish:
Please dont act like you know what you're talking about,just because you read one court transcript, that was distributed by the prosecutor, DUH, what the hell did you think it would say. Sam's DNA, NOT semen, NOT blood, NOT even hair was found on a tissue that supposedly was not even manufactured yet. An African American males pubic hair was found in her bed. Another persons DNA was also found on the scene, but was that announced, NO, of course not. The "witness" gave a description of a man around 5'9, with curly hair, if you knew anything you would know that does NOT portray Sam Freeman. If the concept of him being wrongfully convicted was so outlandish then I doubt he would have one an appeal. Why dont you keep your MIS-informed opinions to yourself.

first of all the black pubic hair was found in the bathroom not on the bed and she had a male black friend and no semen no blood and no hair was found because he didn't rape her physically he used the bottle to do that that was why she had so much bursing on the inside of her legs and yes he has done it before but they did not press charges and one testified on the stand.his dna was found on the tissue behind her back and found on the knee high that was found around her neck no other DNA but his and spelling has nothing to do with facts just like you said one an appeal the correct word there should have been WON so don't correct someone else for their spelling when you are doing the same thing caught you he is where he should be also a black male was not seen forcing his way into apt a white male was

Again, these comments paint him to be two different people. This is very characteristic of someone that is a psychopathic serial killer. Look at BKD in Kansas, he was a pillar of the community and church leader. None of his family could believe he killed multiple times. They still would not believe, had the authorities not caught him red handed. Ted Bundy was another one. Actually most famous killers lived lives that were otherwise normal.

The pain to his family is nothing less than the pain to the Wynn family. They suffered a tremendous loss as well. Justice was done. Maybe it would have been better if he confessed and allowed his family to heal. The best justice would have been if Laura could have shot him dead before he killed her.
