To our many friends around the world:
Today is a very special day for the team at the Robert Paisola Innocence Project. For today we are able to take you very close and inside to quickly present to you one of our many valued supporters who has just passed. The gentleman we are going to introduce you choose to remain behind the scenes, but was the voice of change of many. As many of you know, we and our many connections around the nation were able to do the impossible when we were able to secure a release a wrongfully imprisoned man from The Ohio Department of Corrections Harry Blausey. His story gained national attention as we made sure that America was able to see, read and understand his story that erroneously put him in jail.
This feat was covered by A&E Television and Blausey was let out of prison by the Honorable Tom Marcelain in Newark Ohio of Licking County.
Last night our staff in India called to tell us that there was something very serious going on with our servers, and that we needed to look deeper into the Blausey Case.
Within minutes we learned that Mr Paul Blausey, A staunch supporter of freedom of the press, the catalyst for change (with the entire Blausey Family),and simply a man who demanded justice no matter the cost, time or effort that was required..... had passed away in Genoa Ohio. We want to thank Mr. Blausey for the work that he did to support prisoners rights and the time and effort that our Foundation.
In recognition of Mr. Paul Blausey's Contribution to this Innocence Project and his personal efforts to bring humanity to an inhumane system, we present this lasting memorial that will be posted around the globe.
