Man freed in murder dies short of dream

I'm doubtful for a happy ending of this article.

Dan Young Jr. spent more than a dozen years in Illinois prisons, convicted of a rape and murder he didn't commit.

That sucks!

He was freed 14 months ago, after DNA tests exonerated him, and moved in with his sister on Chicago's South Side. He had a dream of returning to the city of his birth, just outside the Mississippi Delta.

Well I hope he finds happiness.

He never returned. Young, 45, died early Thursday after he was struck by a hit-and-run driver around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday while walking near 59th Street and South Ashland Avenue.

You people remember this next time you complain your life isn't fair.
