When Ron Williamson signed with the Oakland A’s in 1971, he
said goodbye to his hometown of Ada and left to pursue his dreams of big-league
glory. Six years later he was back, his dreams broken by a bad arm and bad
habits. He moved in with his mother and slept twenty hours a day on her sofa.
In 1982, a twenty-one-year-old cocktail waitress in Ada
named Debra Sue Carter was raped and murdered, and for reasons that were never
clear, they suspected Ron Williamson and his friend Dennis Fritz. The two were
arrested and charged with capital murder.
The prosecution’s case was built on junk science and the
testimony of jailhouse snitches and convicts. Dennis Fritz was found guilty and
given a life sentence. Ron Williamson was sent to death row.
