Falsely Implicated 11/2/93 | Exonerated 9/24/12
John was just 18 years old when he was arrested for, and ultimately convicted of a murder he did not commit.
On the morning of September 9, 1993, Landu Mvuemba and DeAnthony Williams walked together to visit the scene of a gang-related shooting committed the night before near 17th Street and Rimpau Boulevard. Without warning, Mvuemba heard the sound of gunfire. He ran for cover but was shot.
