KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KCTV) – After days of trying to free a man from prison, a KCK family has taken to social media for results. And it worked.
Earvin Nunnally’s sister created a post on Wednesday and urged everyone to “share! To share! To share!”
In the message, Shakedra Nunnally calls the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department to get the wrong man behind bars.
Nunnally begs police to match fingerprints and urges authorities to “do better”.
In just a few hours, the post was shared almost 100 times. The comments offered support to the family. Someone finally tagged TV stations, including KCTV5 investigative reporter Angie Ricono. They also tagged Wyandotte County District Attorney Mark Dupree.
Dupree replied, “Thanks for tagging me. I’ll look into that today.
All the attention paid off. When we asked for a statement, the district attorney’s office responded:
Earvin Nunnally’s attorney confirmed that the charges were dropped and the arrest was a mistake.
Nunnally was released and clearly confused and stunned by what happened.
“I want an apology and lost wages and accountability that it wasn’t me,” Nunnally said.
KCK police offered this explanation:
The family describes the situation as crazy and humiliating.
