This Day in History: 2006-10-19

– On this day in 2006, just before his scheduled execution, a death row inmate, Michael Johnson, used his own blood to write “I did not shoot him” on the walls of his cell. The message served as his final plea of innocence. When he was 19 years old, Johnson, alongside his friend, was involved in a fatal incident at a gas station. The friend later testified against Johnson in exchange for a reduced sentence, although this information was not disclosed to Johnson’s defence legal team. 🕊🔒
