Ralph Murry was beaten unconscious at a nightclub in Michigan City Indiana, and another man at the nightclub Lionel Hales, was shot to death. When he regained conscious he found himself wrongly accused of manslaughter on August 3, 1986.  After spending 30 days in jail, he was released on bond. Despite eyewitnesses that identified someone else in detail, the Michigan City police continued to try to prosecute him for the killing for three years, ignoring evidence that there was no gunpowder residue on his fingers, meaning that he had not fired a gun.  Eventually police forced him into pleading guilty of possessing a handgun without a permit. After that, police dismissed the case, but never pursued the real killers in the case. Ralph Murry is seeking to have the Mayor and the County Prosecutor reopen the case and pursue the killers, to bring justice, clear his name, and bring peace to the grieving family.
