The Fitrakis Files: Free Byrd and other Cries for Justice
by Bob Fitrakis
On February 19, 2002, John William Byrd, Jr. was executed in Ohio's Lucasville death house for a crime that he insisted he did not commit. There was no physical evidence connecting Byrd to the murder, and the only direct evidence against him was the word of a notorious jailhouse snitch, himself a violent felon. Bob Fitrakis, award-winning investigative reporter closely followed the case to the end. This book includes his reports on the Byrd case along with other dispatches from the inner recesses of the prison-industrial complex.
