Evidence has proven St. Louis City Police beat him into a pre-rehearsed confession. St. Louis City Prosecutor Nels Moss also admitted to tampering with reports, witnesses and said, “It happened to it”, meaning there is missing or destroyed coroner evidence of innocence. Prosecutors now seek to retry Reggie on First Degree murder, with the Death Penalty. Using the same poisonous corrupted evidence thrown out by the Supreme Court of Missouri. Funds are needed for a strong attorney and a possible bond to Free Reggie from further abuse and injustice.

Click play button below to hear greetings from Reggie: 

Reggie is an innocent man who has been on death row under extreme restrictions for 20 years. In 1991, at the age of 19 he was taken from his home by police under the false pretense that they just wanted to question him about the murders of two sisters that took place on the Chain of Rocks bridge. Despite the insistence from his mother to obtain a lawyer first, the police assured her that Reggie would be fine and would return home later that day.  He has not been back home since.

While in custody, Reggie was beaten by police for  7 hours and denied his right to an attorney! Reggie feared for his life and finally broke down and confessed to raped but he refused to confess to murder. He had faith in the legal system that he would get due process and be fully exonerated because he is innocent.

Last year, “new evidence” surfaced in Reggie’s case and was submitted for DNA testing. The evidence includes  a rape kit supposedly taken from the corpse of one of the victims. The rape kit is still being tested which has caused Reggie’s hearing to again be rescheduled. This time for March 5, 2011. According to Reggie’s lawyers, they are confident that the kit confirms what has already been established, that there is no physical evidence connecting Reggie to the crimes.
