Levon Brooks, from Noxubee in Mississippi, was accused of abducting, raping, and murdering a three-year-old named Courtney Smith in 1990. He became the primary suspect in the case because he was Courtney’s mother’s ex-boyfriend at the time. The case was sealed to his name when Courtney’s five-year-old sister described him as the person who snatched her away.

As you can see in my story, it references the release of Levon Brooks and Kennedy Brewer – both were wrongfully convicted of capital murder in Mississippi. Both cases were overturned due to DNA testing. https://t.co/pKU7C5TnTn

The stories of Levon Brooks and Kennedy Brewer echo those of so many wrongfully incarcerated individuals… And all due to a D.A. who cared more about winning at all costs and a Dr. focused on pseudoscience. So heartbreaking..Give it up Dr. West! #TheInnocenceFiles

3/x the witnesses- the list goes on. These cases have impacted a lot of people for a long time.
The first two episodes cover the stories of Mississippians Levon Brooks and Kennedy Brewer. So many familiar faces and places! My dad is in Episode 1.
