Danny Hayden Willoughby is serving two consecutive sentences of 25 years to life for first degree murder and conspiracy to murder (his wife) in prison. He has proclaimed his innocence from the start. In this video deposition, the true murderess, Yesina Patino, who is incarcerated in a Mexican prison, gives a step by step recreation of how she alone committed the homicide, totally unbeknownst to Willoughby. In her words "I could not find peace with God until I told the truth". Go to http://cases.iippi.org/danny-hayden-willoughby/ for documents and more.
Dorian Morris (15 years old at that time) was the victim of a mob that attacked him at a birthday party with more than 100 invited guests on March 24, 2007 in Bernice, Louisiana. One of his attackers died and Dorian was forced to plead guilty to manslaughter after he had been awaiting trial in jail for over 4 1/2 years. Very much went wrong in this case so that even the victim's family requests Dorian's immediate release from prison. More at http://cases.iippi.org/dorian-amir-morris/

| Sandra Lynn Hemme, a 20 y/o mental patient, was arrested in November of 1980 for capital murder in St. Joseph, Missouri. She was held without bond and confessed to a crime, she probably did not commit.
There was no motive and no physical or trace evidence to tie Sandra Hemme to the crime scene in Saint Joseph, Missouri. There were no eyewitnesses who saw Hemme kill Patricia Jeschke. The only evidence the State had against Hemme was her own guilty plea. Go to http://cases.iippi.org/sandy-lynn-hemme to learn more!
