HistoryTrue Crime

On November 16, 2023, Keith LaMar is scheduled to be executed by the State of Ohio. He has been on Death Row for almost 28 years, convicted of leading a so-called death squad and murdering five men during the 1993 prison uprising at the Southern Ohio Correctional Facility. The 11-day revolt is still one of the longest and bloodiest in U.S. history. But Keith claims he’s not the real killer; he says he’s innocent. He says he was not only targeted by investigators but also railroaded by prosecutors who, he believes, withheld evidence that could have cleared his name. When true crime writer and producer, Leah Rothman looks into Keith’s case, she finds more than she ever expected; she finds herself sucked into a story that becomes surprisingly personal. Is the State of Ohio about to kill an innocent man? The clock is ticking.

  • From a Felon

    Its 2023 and some things seem as though they will never change! Ive been in and out of several different institutions in my life and this is so scary because it’s absolutely true that this could happen to anyone in the “system” especially someone of color! People that are willing to do anything instead of admitting to wrong doing or making a mistake I firmly believe are thee worst people you can possibly come into contact with in this life because nothing and nobody mean anything but their pride... more

  • The Real Deal

    I love this podcast. The subject matter is hard to hear at times, but she is telling the truth. It is so well done. I like Keith, I believe him, I want him to get a second chance. He’s no saint, but I don’t believe he did the crime they want to kill him for. I don’t believe in the death penalty anymore because of things just like this! This man deserves a new trial and even freedom.

  • Justice for Keith!

    This story is a tale of corrupt prosecution and a blatantly racist justice system. We can not allow this appalling miscarriage of justice.

  • Ohio: We Demand Justice for Keith LaMar!

    Leah Rothman approached Season 2 of The Real Killer Podcast with objectivity and a firm commitment to reporting the truth as she uncovered it. She has done a beautiful job of toppling over the house of cards that Ohio set up after the 1993 Lucasvillle Prison Uprising. They wanted to bury the truth of their inability to prosecute anyone due to their mishandling of the evidence (contaminating it all). Their only way out of their mess was to PAY informants—the very perpetrators of the crimes—to poi... more

  • An un-covering worth following

    The depths at which Leah explores this case is just amazing. I’m so impressed at how many voices and perspectives were included throughout this series to show such a deep and complex picture. Thank you to iHeartRadio and Leah for creating space for these journalistic explorations to uncover truths that have been attempted to be buried for far too long. The ways in which Keith LaMar's voice and heart shines through each time he is in these episodes, it is incredibly touching. What a human.
