Urge Governor Warner to Order Tests on Coleman DNA

621 Signatures Goal: 1,000

WE, THE UNDERSIGNED: Request that Virginia Governor Mark Warner order DNA tests be carried out on samples belonging to Roger Coleman to show categorically whether he was guilty or innocent of the 1981 killing of his sister in law, Wanda McCoy.

If the tests show Coleman to be innocent the search for Wanda McCoy\'s real killers can begin-this will also be compelling and unique evidence that the death penalty in the US has executed an innocent human being. If they show him to be guilty, finality will be brought to the family of Wanda McCoy in a case that has contained anything but. The doubt surrounding Coleman
