A Mississippi man who spent more than a decade behind bars for a murder he did not commit was shot to death last week, just two blocks from his home, PEOPLE learns. The Innocence Project New Orleans confirms that Cedric Willis, 44, was found dead on June 24, on the street in his Jackson, Mississippi, neighborhood.
Linda Stephens: It's too bad the women wrongly accused him. They should be held responsible for his death.
Olivia Thomas: he probably wanted to sue the state for false arrest and imprisonment...so the white man had him KILLED!!! you know white people hate to part with any kind of money especially to a person of COLOR!
Heather Seils: anyone who wants to publicly comment about someone's race and blame another race, I believe is ignorant themselves and are probably more racist then the ones they are talking about. rise above the bullshit, and teach our younger generations and children that race has no color. a racist person nomatter what color will always be quick to turn it into a "racial" thing because it's easier to put the blame on somthing they themselves are ignorant and dont have the knowledge to even understand these situations. it is truly sad.....God Bless Our Children and Community and those that protect us everyday.
Stacey: That was probably the police department cause they didn't want to get sued for all that money for him being locked up. They owe millions now there going to find some young dudes to stick the case on. sad
Jr.Boy: Mississippi has 38%blacks and has the highest percentage of black government officials . Being freed from prison by the Innocence Project is hope for others falsely accused. R.I.P
