Wrongly Convicted Man Performs the National Anthem
In the 1980s, a 21-year-old man named William Dillon was convicted and sent to prison for a murder he didn’t commit. After spending 27 years behind bars, despite numerous appeals, it was DNA evidence that finally proved his innocence.
Prior to being convicted, Dillon had been scouted by the Detroit Tigers Major League Baseball team. Despite the injustice he faced, Dillon never lost his love for his country and for the game. After getting his freedom back, he performed
the National Anthem at an MLB game.
Dillon joined Fox and Friends this morning to tell his story. He described the anger he felt for years while in prison. He said it became about survival, rather than guilt or innocence. What changed his way of thinking and helped him cope with his unjustly fate, was when Dillon saw a program on television of children who had terminal cancer. He said that seeing their spirits “just touched my heart so much and so deeply that I realized that I really didn’t have a lot to cry about.”
