LOS ANGELES--()--Life Insurance Services for Charitable Giving announces the Ryan Ferguson American Freedom Tour featuring professional singer/songwriter David Cavan Fraser and drummer / percussionist Special K. The tour kicks off in Columbia, MO this spring and will pass through the Lower 48 States to build grassroots support calling for the reversal of the well publicized wrongful murder conviction of Ryan Ferguson. In addition, the tour will expand public awareness about the staggering number of unjust convictions caused by systemic defects in the justice system.
The goal of the Ryan Ferguson American Freedom Tour is to raise money from individuals, corporations and nonprofit organizations. The funds will be allocated towards (1) Ferguson’s bond, legal defense and reentry expenses, (2) an enhanced reward to any informant providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of Kent Heitholt’s killer and (3) the Innocence Project, whose mission is to bring substantive reform to the justice system responsible for unjust imprisonment and to assist prisoners who could be proven innocent through DNA testing.
About Ryan Ferguson (freeryanferguson.com)
Ryan Ferguson was convicted in 2005 of the 2001 murder of Columbia Daily Tribune sports editor Kent Heitholt and is currently serving a 40-year sentence. Ferguson was falsely convicted solely on the testimony of two non-credible “witnesses” who have since recanted, leaving no forensic or testimonial evidence linking Ferguson to the crime.
