Glynn Simmons, 70, has been exonerated after spending 50 years in prison for a murder conviction in the Edmond liquor store murder case. The conviction dates back to 1975 when Simmons was found guilty of the killing that occurred on the night before New Year’s Eve at a liquor store on South Broadway in Edmond.
Simmons, who had maintained his innocence throughout the years, claimed that he was a convenient suspect and that the police were eager to close the case. In 2001, Simmons reached out to KFOR, and investigative journalist Ali Meyer began looking into his case. Over the years, KFOR has covered Simmons’ pardon and parole process, during which he was denied parole multiple times.
In a special report airing on Thursday, November 2 at 10 p.m., KFOR will present the remarkable exoneration of Glynn Simmons. The report will feature Simmons visiting Edmond for the first time since his conviction was overturned. Additionally, the private investigator who uncovered crucial evidence supporting Simmons’ innocence will be introduced.
