nobody going wolf on village apartments in columbus grove. where the fire started. and where my life ended. i haven't been to this place. in. july in 1907 as a beam of force 1st time back the. long haul feel about the city and i guess. they are old farm village apartment. and go. and i saw one of his on fire. old farm village apartment was pretty much. an apartment and there's little income if you lend me money you know welfare could pick you up and stop the. complex at
parties. everybody was. drinking and getting along. nicely. see the balcony. now how is anybody going to climb up that with a broken hand and a cast. carry into containers and gasoline and paint and and drunk out their minds it's impossible can't be done. on july 29th 1986 there was a party at the old farm village apartment complex at the time kenny was suffering from depression and drinking a lot that night was no exception. and no 2 o'clock noon and carried on and the reality hours in the morning and the mother slim chance until she was off. party and getting high.
a couple of a couple ads stopped by friends of. god they were them. yeah. maybe so. she came downstairs measure me pass and me. and watch for me. and shook my head. at the trial collins claim that ricci had agreed to babysit her daughter while she was away. allegedly in exchange for letting him crash on her sofa that night however neighbors saw him fallen into the bushes and passing out soon afterwards. passed over there where no one. in the bushes. and when he woke up.
i went to my farm and. forth over. my part much in the back. and then you went over here just to see was going on. came from the other side. how big was the fire. you could see a lot of smoke and flames. next thing on all the body yes and. all of them pretty straight to see a lone girl like. every other hairy. dreams about what happened about cynthia i mean where you sleep. some bad dreams. no. no no.
we better get going. bro. how you doing. so you're at the house. what's the address. price. is a bloody hard didn't sleep. if you want. one so i just know. 2000 and. 8 years in my name is steven ritchie and i'm cammies youngest brother how did we get along. good i mean. when we all know i looked up to him. and as
you know he's. 1213 you know i look up to him i mean i really. am for 21 years and. one really has much of a relationship is in prison and so is mine you know our relationship was a phone calls and that was a. calling and concerned about kenneth richie calling on his condition trial was pretty much a farce. they are had him guilty for that trial started a murder trial and it takes 3 judges 45 minutes to. include some guy's guilty. death penalty. the ohio cord was told that 2. advantage of the fact that the neighbor in the
apartment had been left with only the 2 year old victim inside it was alleged that his intention was for the fire to spread to the lower floor where he's ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend were sleeping the keys relied on that just a moan as if people attending the party who stated under oath that ricci was drunk and that's threatening to burn down the building. there was to be people that said threaten to burn the building in some way. going to. make 3 different variations of it. you know i was garbage to the people who tracked statements people lie. and sometimes there's no explanation to lie and almost cost me my life so far as
some of the evidence goes the goes back to let's go back to the fire marshall. marshall stated that kenny had poured gasoline on his the on the porch also. and it was traced in the guest room on the porch. if you please be seated. almost 20 years later gaining his lores would prove that the investigation had been flawed resulting in the wrong conclusions. there was a brand new porsche that was built. when the fire marshal stated that he didn't take chippings aisle of the charred port to chip wood chips for me brand new built . dead. but he stated they were charred while crime lab screwed up and didn't do it. tested properly. or didn't read them properly and that cause. we. the best experts in the world take
a look at it and said now if this is not gasoline. you know pain and false i wouldn't you want to present them and the judge just took it as trees fell you if you execute just one innocent person that's. reason enough money abba death penalty and they just don't do that we're going to. going to either kill you. fool of the match. oh i'm proud of stephen better put out a. stephen has done great for themself in
a beautiful from way and i sort of. tend to jealous. since you have a brother live in around where you can go to use a place to stay for a while until you get to. he's never offered to know. him i'm too proud to. hold yours were stolen from you. trying to make up for that you're just so full life itself together. tried. to be right. you. just want things go good. the world pulled out from under me. it's all part of the bloody life. at the time a still me jenny had no regular job. any kind of stable income.
you know world of big part of the lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made stream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the path and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. the world is driven by a dream shaped by our own personal there is.
no dares thinks. we dare to ask. in the troubled 19 seventies a group of killers rampage 3 parts of northern ireland that was coordinated loyalist attacks particularly on the population of belfast tens of thousands were forced to flee their homes come up with strike and put these attacks was a p.r. you see the police actually took part in the attacks so instead of preventing them they were active participants in the burning of coal streets in belfast at the take more than a 100 innocent civilians were unloaded as the review can seniors and we found out more i was surprised about the extent and of the currency which the collusion was involved in some of those cases. would later be named to the beginning i think it
went to do very very top i think if the. water where all the taste you want. to give the go ahead. my name is our president working on here and form this is called sanctuary offers. housing and restoration for at risk and homeless veterans. how you would be. being imprisoned do you have a film that i can't go home most pleasurable once you get the stigma attached to
you so that you know. you know how much of a life left i meant to mr rich. life in the october. 17th so roughly a year ago gave him a place to stay at least a roof or recite it and. he would do menial tasks around the house through the days did he appreciate what i done for him. to be honest i'd have to say no he's still fairly you know. no longer to 250 in the form that i was put in already. you know utilities but i wasn't getting causing him any money. it threw me out of the a problem you know told me to leave communication or arnold the skinny a place to live on condition that he get his act together and find a job to secure a steady income but the. that never happened in his case he drank extensively.
and he. was subject to drug use not only drug use but a lot of the also come along with prostitution. and that's just not a way to renovate your life and get back on a positive path he had an opportunity to redeem his life he had an opportunity to raise. years of imprisonment and even take full advantage of the opportunity i think to me hasn't forgiven himself for something he's been nice in a man make it right because it's eating you alive you're just not happy with his friends. when he took me to must sell him put me in a. door slam the. death row inmates or.
recognized by the red stripe and he goes down the side of the pants the son of the template. indicate sure. that you're in there for execution and every time you walk in the corridors of the president there's a dead man walking dead man walking. gainey never admitted guilt and launched repeated appeals to have his case review his death sentence was postponed with each new submission but if one was refused any new date in time for the execution was scheduled over his 21 years in prison he was told on 13 different occasions the exact date and time when he would die as depression. brings you know. he. does from time to mentally. the other piece of me died i know that on one day the very for the call the.
drugs are not going on my my life is full of bad memories. i don't need to remember i don't want to remember them. if you think it is easy. to do in here you know what. was. most really all to do cherry. hill leading you to think yeah mine is very good did you. think it was so emotional because you know she loves me and because. she lost she lost me always years ago and i always knew that he was innocent. but nobody.
would prove that i'm wrong. i've been down this road with him forever in almost 60 years. because it was. in the early 2000 and. one cold 3 been sentenced to death and the states began to attract media attention on both sides of the pond. they have a reporter or they call me one of them to talk to me and stuff and over you me they're trying to. trying to judge and. i'm going to prosecute. you know we're going to let the article came out just. like you know. newspapers contacted me and then people started writing me. due to.
the proclaimers. orders for a whole chunk all over you. while. you were going to go. on a stand on national came out. publicly stated. my case with one of the most compelling case is a bit of power and influence the human human rights campaigners. were seen. in 2007 get his lawyers came to an agreement with the prosecutors. the arson and murder charges swear a plea bargain down to child endangerment. this was enough to secure rich's release considering the amount of time he'd already spent in prison. only one person in the courthouse still believes him can his guilt bellary basically. the victims.
i have. here. tonight i'm going to face get through it but i want to know you want nobody. you want. to know i never can take any kids who says he loves kids too. to those children. he wouldn't be. here you know the idea was. you know if you live. here in the testimonies if you have a problem to scream bloody on something with. can you start asking me the. age old question about going to hell oh is there talk about am i going to go to hell for what happened cynthia collins. and i would tell
him again for the millionth viewer to drop charring member what happened any didn't know the baby was there and i really believed that and he turned around. and in the most evil voice i had ever heard come out of his mouth with out an accent. he goes. i knew she was there and i knew exactly what i was doing. my name is karen i am rich and i am the ex-wife. of kenneth rich karen married gay mean do you think i was an 113 years after it was finally released from prison. i had no idea what i was getting into i had no clue because i truly believed in his story about being incarcerated for 21 and a half years for a crime he didn't commit. suicide ok i'll play into your ego because i really
wanted to know how the fire started and i thought how can i how can i ask this question how can i get this information from him without him. lying to me i said because you are just so incredibly smart. he goes because they're a bunch of dumb asses like ok. because you take a lit cigarette it will come back to it in the boat. behind the couch and then i walk down the street 30 minutes later a place goes up in smoke and they can't connect me to the crime. i didn't expect that. i was just absolute shock. i thought i am married to satan himself. she's
a lawyer just give money. something like. 3 years to come forward with it. let's just. try to make money off. she told me. problem of cold cold cold didn't coach with me. because i'm going into it there are other spirits that decided to intervene and one was his father. and his father came to me in the middle of the night open my eyes same the same time and i. see this figure in the doorway. shadow walk through the door around the bed. and right next to me again
and. he said we need your help. and i need you to tell k. that he's been forgiven. and. he says we need your help to save. so. the next night. i go to bed and i heard these footsteps. on the carpet running to the side of the bed. course i wake up and i look up and there's this little island. a little. same size as my 2 right there. and i'm in shock and she said. i need to deliver a message. and use you to tell kenny that i forgive them. i forgive
them. i said. ok. to another look. at the spiritual experience. and i had the little girl that died in the fire cynthia collins. i have. had very few of that kind of thing happen where you shake to your core when you're around something so evil was kenneth ritchie that happened. some of the bullshit people would normally. think. what can push me oh really most times i'm too nice a potion. i was about go. figure
some of the story. so i. can do a rebel. control the pain. despite the claims of kenneth riches ex-wife nicole and smirk case was never reopened. karen herself wanted us to make clear that she received no money for a given this interview. after the fall out with donald. jenny was unable to find a new job and the lack of money manti had to move out of the rented apartment and back to his stand in the forest.
