The Moth-- wonderful stories I hear on my local NPR station...

https://themoth.org/radio-hour...

Today I tuned in late and go the story of a kid, Huwe Burton, who, at 16, was wrongly convicted of killing his mother. His father stood by him for all the years of trial and imprisonment and finally went home to Jamaica to take care of his ailing mother.

Father came back, but during the last visit it was clear had Alzheimer's and ended up dying a month or so before the case was thrown out and the Huwe Burton was released and exonerated.

Huwe himself narrates, and it is heart-wrenching.
