In hopes of capturing a very special time for Derrick and his family – as Derrick was exonerated and reunited with his family – we are continuing to gather more news coverage. Additional coverage can be seen here, here, here, here, and here.
During some of the interviews, Williams said, “I want to thank God who made all this possible. I want to thank the Innocence Project and I thank my family and for everybody for just believing in me from day one when I told you. Everybody stuck with me. I’ve got a journey ahead and it’s going to be a long road, but it’s going to be a sweet one with all this behind me.”
“Can’t explain it. Just filled with joy. I really don’t think it’s sunk in yet,” he said Tuesday afternoon as he held tightly to his family.
