COLUMBIA — Convicted for a murder that happened 350 miles away, Joshua Kezer lost nearly 16 years of his life for a crime he didn't commit. CBS’s "48 Hours Mystery" is telling his story at 9 p.m. Saturday.
Kezer was accused of murdering 19-year-old Angela Mischelle Lawless — a woman he had never met — in 1994. Now 35, Kezer is a free man, and he's taking steps to help other wrongfully convicted people. He has worked with groups such as the Midwest Innocence Project and recently spoke at an event the project held at MU.
"There’s a story to be told," Kezer said. "It’s not easy for me to tell it. Sometimes I don’t want to tell it. Sometimes I’d rather just be left alone, but it needs to be told and I need to be one of the people telling it."
The show will air on KRCG Channel 13.
