Two Former Death Row Inmates Freed After 39 Years Of Wrongful Imprisonment

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Ricky Jackson and Wiley Bridgeman walked out of the hell known as the Ohio prison system Friday, exonerated of a horrific slaying that they didn't commit.

Kriss Strachan was held after his own mother ordered that he hand himself into police. 

The 17 year-old later confessed to officers: "I cannot believe I done it. I am a scumbag." 

Strachan had earlier battered and assaulted the terrified OAP after forcing his way into her home of 40 years in Bellshill, Lanarkshire in July this year.

"I don't know anything about the roses. It might have been someone else, and I may have falsely taken [credit for it]," he smirked. 

While this doesn't mean Taylor fans should abandon all hope that they'll get together — especially because they were recently spotted talking at the same concert — it does make it a lot more unlikely.
