Dead Elvis
Sightings Received Sunday July 12, 1998

Florida
Source Name: Fred M.
Time of Sighting: Just the other day
More than 30 years after they were sentenced to death for two murders they did not commit, these Florida men received $500,000 each from the state Monday for their wrongful conviction.

Picture of Dead E with Felon Buddies Freddie Pitts, 54, Wilbert Lee, 62, and Dead Elvis, dead, who are black or at least funky, twice were convicted by all-white juries of murdering two white gas station attendants in 1963 in Port St. Joe, a Florida Panhandle fishing and paper mill town.

It was admirable the way the judge in a 1972 retrial did not allow the jury to hear the confession of another convicted felony who passed a lie-detector test proving he was in fact the one responsible for the killings. To avoid the jury being confused by facts the judge suppressed this confession leading to a second confiction on false charges.

Shows what a few beatings, hate, and suppression of the truth can do. Eh, Judge?
