The Real Killer: Keith LaMar

Release Date:  Dec 1, 2022
Easter Sunday, 1993. Inmates at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility, protesting poor conditions and religious freedom violations, riot for 11 days, the bloodiest in Ohio, the longest in U.S. history. When it's all said and done, nine inmates and one corrections officer are dead. The hunt for those responsible is on. Prosecutors say Keith LaMar is the leader of an alleged Death Squad and singlehandedly called for the deaths of five prison snitches. The jury agrees and sentences him to death. With no physical evidence tying Keith to any of the crimes for which he was convicted, he says he’s there because prosecutors lied and withheld evidence that could have cleared his name. As of today, Keith LaMar has spent the last 28 years in solitary confinement. The clock is ticking. He is scheduled to be executed by the State of Ohio, November 16, 2023.

Heart breaking
So many wrongfully accused/innocent people in prison. I sat through a trial of my doctor. The whole thing was like being in the twilight zone. I know he’s innocent. But I’m prison. Such a broken system we have.

Interesting and well done.
Yet another wrongful conviction. So sick of our horrible criminal justice system. This podcast gives a real look into how one wrongful conviction happened and how hard it is to undo. The interviews were insightful and the narrator did an excellent job. This podcast is definitely worth your time.

Great Reporting
This story was so interesting standing alone but I really enjoyed the in depth detail it took in how corrupted our systems are that are in place. I grew up in MIssouri and it was sad to hear this but it will educate so many people and that’s the only way to make a change.
