On April 23, 1996, Stacey Stites was found murdered in Bastrop, Texas. Rodney Reed was arrested, charged, and condemned to death for her murder. Over the years many concerned organizations, celebrities, business owners, and humanitarians have argued that Reed is innocent of this crime. The ground swelling movement surrounding this case was an effective agent for action, as this week an indefinite stay of execution has been ordered.
