Corey McCall

June 2021



Corey Quentin McCall was convicted despite compelling evidence of his innocence. He was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole for three counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in December of 2005 and served almost 16 years of wrongful imprisonment before his exoneration in June of 2021. A thorough reinvestigation by a partnership of the State Conviction Integrity Unit and the Western Michigan University Cooley Law School Innocence Clinic led to the discovery of new evidence obtained from Wal-Mart that corroborated Corey’s insistence that he was at the store the night of the murders. Also, investigators learned that the actual perpetrators of the crime had information of Corey’s innocence and waited until recently to disclose it to the investigation.
