"For the last 23 years, my brother and best friend, Billie Allen, has been tried, convicted, and sentenced to death for a crime that he did not commit. I know that any sister, who loves their brother as I love mine, would be quick to come to his defense -- especially if their brother is facing death, but my brother is innocent!!"

- Y.A., sister of Billie Allen

 

CASE SUMMARY

Billie Allen was wrongfully convicted of the 1997 armed robbery and murder of security guard Richard Heflin which took place at the Lindell Bank & Trust in St. Louis, Missouri. Despite no physical, forensic nor documentary evidence linking my brother to the crime, he was arrested the next day. He was told that he was the second suspect involved.

At the time of my brother’s arrest, DNA, GASOLINE, FINGERPRINTS and CLOTHING were collected and tested. All testing came back negative. However, my brother’s attorney failed to disclose this evidence at trial—he failed to disclose multiple pieces of evidence excluding my brother.
