Romell Broom

Biography

30 years on Death Row, 1 failed execution, 2 non-matching dna profiles, no lawyer... Romell Broom, who has spent three decades on Ohio’s Death Row, tells his own story: a ‘throwaway’ boy from a disadvantaged background, hastily convicted for a crime he has always protested he didn’t do. Having survived a two-hour execution attempt in 2009 he is still asking, ‘Will anybody listen to the truth?'

"The Romell Broom case is yet another example of why the United States should abolish the death penalty immediately. The inherent flaws of the capital punishment system are again exposed in all their horror as we are left to ponder how many other individuals will have to go through this nightmare." (Rick Halperin, former Chair, Amnesty International USA)

“A horrifying story embracing all the evils of the death penalty. Bad forensics, dodgy dna, awful lawyers, render this a must-read.” (Jon Snow, Channel 4 News, UK)
