This is a man that sat on death row for a crime he did not commit. Most of us cannot even imagine that.

Most of us would be full of bitterness if that had happened to us. However, he is going out and telling his story so maybe this will not happen to another.

Thank God for this man.

Before anyone else comments on the Randy Steidl case you just might want to read the article all the way through and think about it and what he has said.

He is very loose with the truth to begin with now and in the past. He has never been cleared of the murders and he can be recharged and tried in the future.(very doubtful based on the time since the murders)

Note also that there are not over 4,000 on death rows as he states.

I also doubt that he could change anyone's mind about the death penalty in only 5 minutes, much less law enforcement and lawyers, as he says.

Bill...Steidl and Whitlock are both considered suspects in this crime as well as others. Let him flap his jaws.

There are a lot of people watching and listening to him waiting for a mistake to be made.

The mistake made is the big guys have let these little fish live thus enhancing the chance they will speak the truth some day. It might come as a death bed confession, but it will come.

Another inmate for the murderer lovers to cry over.

Leon Davis, FL, sentenced to 3 death sentences. ALL he did was force the victims into a restroom of an insurance office, bound them, got gasoline, and set them on fire! He wanted to cover up his robbery by killing the people who knew who he was. At 6'5" and about 250# he was hard to miss. One of the victims made an id before she died. He also tried to kill another person as he left the scene.

Most of his defense was that he was out of town and it was mistaken identity.
