OVERTURN A CONVICTION
This website has been established in an effort to help free Jeff. As his defense team prepared for trial they quickly became aware that not all leads were followed in the investigation of the Pelley's deaths. In fact, numerous people have come forward with information that they had previously shared with police and no reports had been filed. Police simply focused on Jeff and gathered no information on the real killer or killers. They didn't even fingerprint the crime scene.
