Today’s episode is a mini about the first and last Black woman to be executed in New York State in the 20th century. Helen was executed for a murder that she did not commit.
Unfortunately there is no update, District Attorney Sandra Doorley does not believe the case can be solved. Hundreds of people are left without answers. Ten people lost their lives and thirty four were injured, none of them will get justice.
The volume in the first five minutes is kind of wonky. Sorry about that, it gets better!
