About the Podcast
Demarchoe Carpenter was only seventeen when he was wrongfully convicted of murder. He spent the next twenty-two years of his life trying to prove his innocence. His wrongful conviction isn't an isolated incident, but rather part of a larger systemic breakdown. Through Buried Alive: Demarchoe's story we hope to identify the systemic causes that ultimately led to his wrongful incarceration... and to use that knowledge to effect change.
