17-year-old Cain Joshua Storey was wrongfully convicted of murdering his friend, Brian Bowling, in 1995. As investigative journalists uncovered in the first season of Proof: A True Crime Podcast, a series of investigative errors led to Cain spending 25 years in prison.
In 2022, Cain's Extraordinary Motion for New Trial was granted, and he was released from prison to reunite with his family. Now 43 years old, we've created this GoFundMe to raise funds to help Cain get back on his feet as he learns to navigate through life as a free and exonerated man.
His attorney, Luke Martin, set up this GoFundMe for Josh's benefit. As you can imagine, after spending 25 years in prison Josh was released without housing, clothes, food, or even proper state identification. He was incarcerated when he was 17 and he has never had a driver's license or a car. Donations will go directly to Josh for him to use to obtain temporary housing, clothes, and food while he searches for a job and more permanent living arrangements.
