victims to scapegoat harmed but how cold insist to your old daughter cynthia died in the fire. nobody's going to hold village apartments from columbus. georgia the fire started. where my life ended. i haven't been to this place. in. july in 1907 as a people for 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.
village apartment put in much. an apartment and there's little income and. no money could pick you up and stuff the. complex up bodies. everybody will. be drinking and getting going. to. see the balcony. now how is anybody going to climb up that with a broken hand and attached. carry into containers and gasoline and pants and and drunk oh their mind is impossible can 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 2
o'clock noon and carried on an early hours in the morning the mother slim chance until she was off. a couple of a couple ads stopped my friends are. they were them. yeah. maybe so. she came downstairs and 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. pulled 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. and. you could see a lot of smoke and flames. next thing. the body is and. all and i'm pretty straight to see a little girl like up. there
years 8 years my name is steven ritchie and i'm cammies youngest brother how did we get along. good i mean. when we were younger i looked up to him now and as you know he's. 1213 you know i looked up to. him for 21 years and. one rule is much of a relationship is in prison and so is when you know our relationship was a phone calls and that was a. calling concern about 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. declare some guy's guilty. death penalty.
the ohio cord was told that kenny could vanish of the sack at the neighbor an 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 case relied on that just a moment as if people attending the party who stated under oath that ricci was drunk and that threaten to burn down the building. there was to be people that said threaten to burn the building in some way. towards a section. going to. see me 3 different variations of it. you know i was garbage to the people who tracked
of 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 in 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 floor. to 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 out of the charred poor 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 had the best experts in the world take a look at it and said no this is not a gap. no pain and no false i wouldn't you want the president and the judge just took it as trees fell you and you execute just one innocent person that was. reason enough my abba death penalty and they just don't do that. your brother kill you. fool of the match.
no i'm proud of stephen better put out. steven has done great for themself in a beautiful from way and i sort of. tend to jealous. since you have a brother livin around where you can go to use a place to stay for a while until you get that going through. he's never offered to know. i'm too proud. oldsters were stolen from you. trying to make. it just social life together. drive. back everything. just when 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 or any kind of stable income. all of us will hoops it is. a baby but it's a behavior that appears even in death and dying babies even if you've never heard of same love that you will feel tickles by your parents. and then we learn how to use this in a more complex way i am one of the things that we. had to join in would love to contagiously to love and somebody else loves even if you don't know why they love think. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president and she. wanted. you to be like to be for us it's like
that before 3 of them all can't be good. interested always in the waters of. the city. my name is on all ramsey program or no one here this is called sanctuary for all right it offers. housing and restoration for at risk and homeless veterans and they always have that. how you would be nice to be imprisoned do you have a film that i thought most pleasurable once you get the stigma attached to. you know how much of a life left i met mr rich. in the october. 2002
so roughly a year ago gave him a place to stay at least a rueful recited. image change he would. do menial tasks around the house during the day did he appreciate. to be honest i'd have to say no he stopped me you know. you no longer paid me to $250.00 a week sadly enough for that i was paying no rent. no utilities but i wasn't getting i wasn't getting any money. it threw me all of the a problem you know told me to leave communication or arnold deeds gave me a place to live on condition that he get his act together and find a job to secure a steady income but 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 the 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 they took me to must sell him put me in a. door slam it in the. death row inmates or. recognized by the red stripe that goes down the side of the pants son of a penlight. indicate sure. that you're in there for
execution and every time you walk in the corridors with 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 he's 21 years in prison he was stalled on 13 different occasions the exact date and time when he would die as depression. you know. he. does from time to mentally. another piece of me died i know that on one day.
and. 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. do you do. with the old teacher in cherry. hill leading you to. that mine is very good did you. think it was so emotional because you know. because. she lost. i always knew that he was innocent. but nobody.
would prove that. i've been down this road with him forever in almost 60 years. because it was. in the early 2000 the case of a scotsman 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 contacted me and wanted to talk to me and stuff and over you me trying to. trying to judge and. trying to prosecute. you know it was an issue when the article came out just. like you know. newspaper column talk to 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 would be one of the most compelling case is a bit of power and the essence the human to 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. i'm going to face get through it but i want to tell you
nobody. you want. to know i never can take any confusion he loves kids too. he was told. he wouldn't be. there you know the idea was it was another lie. during the testimony to get it probably pissed off somewhere but. kenny started asking me the. age old question about going to hell oh as a tart about am i going to go to hell for what happened to cynthia collins. and i would tell him again for the millionth viewer to drop the 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 elaborate 3 years asteroid he 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. and i thought 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 you out so. he goes because they're a bunch of dumb ass sort of like ok. because it was easy because you take a lit cigarette it will come back to it in the book. 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. just her trauma but. she told. problem of cold cold cold me get in touch 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 hope. tokay that he's been forgiven. and. he says we need your help to save its. the next night. i go to bed and i heard these footsteps. on the carpet running on the side of the bed. and of course i wake up and i look and there's this little i and. a little same size as my 2 right there. and i'm in shock and she said. i need you to deliver a message. and use you to tell kenny that i forgive him. i forgive him. and 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 bush people are. all through the same thing. oh really most times i'm to most 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 reach his ex-wife the collinson murder case was now reopened. karen herself wanted us to make clear that she received no money for a given this interview. after the fall out with donald. kenney was unable to find a new job and the like of my name and he had to move out of the rented apartment and back to his stand in the forest.
