Hello, my name is Deandre Woolfolk. I am currently serving a life sentence for a murder I did not commit.
On Jan 28, 2007, in Detroit, Michigan a 17-Year-old woman M.L. was shot and killed coming out of a house with her boyfriend M.W., and two other friends. At the time of the shooting, I was at my dad's house celebrating my 18th birthday.
M.W. and others were questioned soon after the shooting, but there appeared to be no suspects in the case. In November 2009, B.K. the lead detective on the case, went to St Louis jail to talk with M.W. after he had reached out to her and he allegedly identified me in a single photo lineup she presented to him.
Another individual O.A. was allegedly present at the scene and brought in for questioning in 2010, but was let go due to being merely present at the scene. The case was not brought to my attention until 2012 when I found out I was a suspect because evidently, M.W. named me as the shooter; ironically M.W. also had a personal vendetta against me.
My case was brought to trial in July 2012 but no witnesses were called on my behalf.
I am willing to take a lie detector test to these facts, as the evidence itself in this case shows that I am innocent, furthermore the actual defendant admitted to the murder to other individuals in “street talk”.
M.W.’s testimony is flawed for many reasons and my case shows why M.W.’s preliminary examination testimony and trial testimony changed, plus there was no real evidence supporting his testimony.
My family and I have been working very hard on getting more evidence on my behalf to prove my innocence, but it has been difficult if not impossible.
My case has been with the conviction integrity unit for a few years now, with no results.
I would like my story to reach as many people as possible. I’d like help building a team of people who want to help me seek justice, including media exposure, private investigators, attorneys, and others who want to dig deeper into my case and reveal the truth.
This journey has been a long and hard one met with a lot of pain, struggle, dishonesty, and loss. I've lost both parents and had to watch my daughter grow up behind pictures, and although I try to embrace these trials because it has shaped who I am today, I am anxiously awaiting redemption, triumph, and justice. I should not have to spend the rest of my life in prison for a crime someone else did. I do not want to die in prison for someone else’s lies.
All herein declared truthful and accurate in accordance with federal law 28 USC 1746.
