Statue of Tim Cole to Be Unveiled (Innocent man who died in prison)
I was disappointed that this article did not mention renowned sculptor Eddie Dixon whose work the statue is. I was privileged to see the nearly complete clay form in Mr. Dixon’s studio a few months ago. It is beautiful, with all the subtlety of expression for which Eddie is so justly known.
Karen Kennard wanted to leave.
As news broke of her brother’s arrest for the rape of a Texas Tech student, Kennard didn’t want to study at the university’s law school anymore. She was going to transfer to SMU, where she got her undergraduate degree.
But her brother, Timothy Cole, told her to stay.
An innocent man behind bars, he sent Kennard a letter from prison. It read: “I still believe in the justice system, even though it doesn’t believe in me.”
“That’s what he wrote. That’s what I want people to get,” said their brother, Cory Session. “Even though an injustice happened to him, he still did not give up on the justice system. We still have the best legal system in the world. It is not perfect; there are flaws, but we still have to remain faithful and trusting.”
