Texas Death Row Inmate, Larry Swearingen #999361 Gets Execution Date on January 27, 2009.
An INNOCENT MAN on death row in Texas.
We the undersigned are writing and signing this petition on behalf of death row prisoner Larry Swearingen, #999361, Polunsky Unit, TX. Larry is scheduled to be executed on January 27, 2009 for a murder he did not commit. He was in Jail while the murder in this case occured and the DNA (blood and hairs) excluded him as the biological donor. He was in no position to have committed this crime.
Evidence was withheld from medical examiner and the jury; leading the medical examiner at the time of trial to a wrong time of victim's death that erred in the jury coming to a death sentence. The medical examiner reviewed the case in 2007 and reversed her opinion on the date of death, with now four forensic pathologists independently reaching the same conclusion - that the victim got killed and her body dumped in the woods while Larry Swearingen was in jail on unrelated charges.
We ask that you please stop the scheduled execution of Larry Swearingen based on these facts as far as Texas law allows, and urge a reopening of the investigation, as there is other evidence that points unambiguously to actual innocence. Please show clemency to a father of five kids who is NOT guilty of the crime he was convicted of, and save him from death.
We thank you very much for your time and attention to this very important matter!
