Save Billie Allen

The art above is by Billie Allen, a federal death row prisoner.  Billie Allen was convicted and sentenced to the federal death penalty for the 1997 armed robbery and murder of bank security guard Richard Heflin in St. Louis, Missouri. There is no physical, forensic nor documentary evidence linking Billie to the crime, yet his appeals have now been exhausted. With the resumption of federal executions in 2020, Billie's life is at serious risk.

At the time of Billie's arrest, DNA, clothing and fingerprints were collected and tested. All testing came back negative. However, his defense attorney failed to disclose these facts at trial and he failed to disclose multiple pieces of evidence excluding Billie as the perpetrator. He also did not follow through with evidence of an alibi witness and another suspect running from the crime scene.

Due to a serious claim of innocence, ineffective assistance of counsel, and a belief that the death penalty is not warranted in this case, we call on you to take Billie off of death row and grant him a a full judicial review of the evidence showing his innocence.

Please show your support by signing this petition.
