Online donations raise over $1 million for Missouri man wrongfully convicted in triple homicide

Kevin SricklandDonations are pouring in to help a man who was freed from a Missouri prison after a judge found he was wrongfully convicted in 1979 in a triple killing.

The GoFundMe fundraiser to benefit Kevin Strickland had surpassed its $430,000 goal by Wednesday afternoon, and donations kept coming.

As of Friday morning, donors have raised over $1 million.

Many of the donors expressed outrage that the 62-year-old wouldn’t receive compensation from Missouri. The state only allows wrongful imprisonment payments to people exonerated through DNA evidence, so Strickland doesn’t qualify.

Strickland has always maintained that he was home watching television and had nothing to do with the killings, which happened when he was 18 years old.
