Ryan Ferguson (2015)

Ryan Ferguson is an American man who is widely believed to be wrongfully convicted of the 2001 murder of sports editor Kent Heitholt, who was found strangled in a parking lot in Columbia, Missouri. At the time of the murder, Ferguson was a 17-year-old high school junior. Heitholt was murdered shortly after 2 am on November 1, 2001 in the parking lot of the Columbia Daily Tribune, where he worked as a sports editor. Heitholt's murder went unsolved for two years until police received a tip that a man named Charles Erickson could not remember the evening of the murder and was concerned that he may have been involved with the murder. Erickson, who spent that evening partying with Ferguson, was interrogated by police. Despite initially seeming to have no memory of the evening of the murders, he eventually confessed and implicated Ferguson as well. Ferguson was convicted in the fall of 2005 on the basis of Erickson's testimony as well as the testimony of a janitor at the building. Both witnesses later recanted their testimony, claiming they were coerced to lie by the police.
