For the love of everything that's right, would somebody PLEASE take a look at the conviction of Jackie D. McCrady. This man has been sitting in Ross County Correctional Institute since 1997, convicted of murdering his wife in 1996. And I have been out here working my heart out trying to get someone to listen to me.
I have so many things that can show that Jackie McCrady did NOT murder his wife, and I have posted them on my own web site in hopes that someone would step up and help me.
I do have new and compelling information since the trial and have several people that could help in this project.
My web site is http://starlightinnerprizes.com
Go to the September page and look at all the McCrady material that I have posted since he was convicted. http://starlightinnerprizes.com/September.htm
Also, I'm working right now on yet another series that breaks the case down even finer, in hopes that someone will listen. See http://starlightinnerprizes.com/McCradyReview...
I know who the killer is, and tried to tell authorities back in 1996 when Jenifer McCrady was murdered. They wouldn't listen.
Please, sombody come forward and take a look at this man's case... please.

Sincerely,
Bonnie M. Wells

Guilty. Pretty clear cut. Some stupid cops for sure, but if i was innocent, I sure as hell would have been on the stand in my own defense.

They should ban DNA testing. It's letting too many criminals off the hook.

I am fighting back the tears as I write this tonight. I have prayed and worked so hard for this very thing, and didn't think I would live long enough to ever see it.
Thank you Lord; Thank you Ohio Innocence Project; Thank you Prosecutor O'Brien.
I don't know Mr. Fears, and don't need to. He should not have to sue anybody to be compensated for the time he sat in prison for something he didn't do. I say one million dollars per every ten year period, no questions asked, no lawyer needed.
There are others in Ross County prison that are innocent. Jackie D. McCrady is one of them. DNA testing could have proven the man innocent. Hell, I could have proven the man innocent, but no one would listen to me any more than they would listen to him.
Well, Jackie's been sitting there for nearly 14 years now, and I've been out here praying and working .... and tracking a serial killer that has actually been bold enough to duplicate the McCrady case as well as several others in recent years.
Ohio Innocence Project - you have heard my name, as has David Protess in the IL. Innocence Project, and hundreds, if not thousands of attorneys, cops, judges and private citizens, because I really do believe that truth must prevail and that justice is the one thing that we should always find.

I think you need to let it rest. It is quite evident that he is guilty.

Let me start by saying Happy Birthday Jackie McCrady....never met you personally but I did Jennifers hair and no I do not believe you killed your wife....MY prayers for you is that someone takes a second look at this,gather the evidence that wasn't allowed in court and start shoving some idiots thoughts and words right down their simple minded stupid throats....Thomas's case was overturned so will Jackie's be very soon...get the corrupt blood out of washington cty and some fresh eyes that isn't worried about solving a case finally....

If I was able, I would be all over this nonsense. Stay strong Ms. Bonnie. You other clowns don't have a clue. When it all comes out in the wash, you clowns may wanna go choke ya'self. I am fully aware of ALL relevant facts and evidence. This man shouldn't be in prison.Even without the DNA evidence.

No Christian can look at this guy and tell me he's innocent!
Men like this are allowed to walk free when those in charge blindly put their faith in "science"!
If there were any justice in our world, this blight would already have been executed!

You are correct there is enough evidence that proves his innocence including the gun itself

Could you redirect yours Tracy there is enough compelling evidence that proves his innocence and if it were you or someone close to you you would be doing the same no one innocent should be sitting in prison it's a waste of money and even more the person who did commit the crime is still out there so how comfortable are you on that high horse what if the true killer is sitting next door to you?
