Being Poor Should Not Be a Reason for Injustice


Raymond Burrell was found raped and murdered behind a Leonardtown, Maryland school on January 6, 1980. Unfortunately money and class prevented justice from being served. Burell was poor and low income while his killers came from well off families with influence. The investigation was closed after the current Sheriff at the time Sheriff Wayne Pettit abruptly halted the investigation including pulling one suspect whose grandmother was a Maryland Circuit Court clerk out of interrogation at her bequest.
