Free Ryan Ferguson

The Back Row may not be a crime website, but I feel this story definitely deserved to be featured. I recently got myself a side gig writing articles for the website, Listverse, and they’ve mainly focused on unsolved mysteries and true-crime stories. I recently published one entitled “10 Controversial Convictions Based on False Confessions” and the #1 spot featured a young man from Missouri named Ryan Ferguson, who is currently serving 40 years in prison for a murder that even Ray Charles could see he didn’t commit! Seriously, the only reason Ryan was even charged in the first place was because his confused, mentally ill friend decided to tell police that they committed the murder together even though there is ZERO evidence to tie them to the crime! While this case has gotten some mainstream media coverage on shows like Dateline and 48 Hours Mystery, it is not quite as well known as some of the other wrongful conviction cases I covered on my list. This is why the “Free Ryan Ferguson” Facebook group were quite thrilled to see Ryan’s case get prominently featured on Listverse, so they’ve been spreading my article around quite a bit these past few days. Ryan’s story is undoubtedly one of the scariest and most blatant miscarriages of justices I’ve ever seen and there is a ton of corruption keeping him in prison, so I’m happy to give the case any extra exposure I can. I’ve posted the 48 Hours Mystery¬†segment and if it makes your jaw drop, be sure to visit the “Free Ryan Ferguson” website to learn more information and sign this petition demanding his release. For a more extensive version of this story, you can check out the lengthy Dateline segment posted below.
