Innocent but Condemned
Rich Glossip is innocent. The real killer, Justin Sneed, is behind bars for life. Sneed admitted he was the killer and only implicated Rich after detectives suggested it as a way out. Following the detectives’ lead, Sneed said he’d only committed the murder because Glossip paid him to do it, and prosecutors agreed to drop the death penalty for Sneed if he would testify against Rich.
Now, Rich Glossip has been on death row for 22 years and will soon face execution for a murder he did not commit.
Sneed’s self-serving testimony was the only evidence tying Rich to the murder of Barry Van Treese at the Best Budget Inn in Oklahoma City in 1997. There is no physical or forensic evidence that Rich had any involvement in the murder. In fact, the evidence all points to a botched robbery by Sneed.
Glossip was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and now Oklahoma wants to execute him. Now the truth is finally coming out.
