In this episode, we will be talking with Debra Milke about the loss of her son, her wrongful incarceration, and her eventual vindication.

On Saturday, December 2, 1989, Christopher Milke, Debra Milke’s 4 year old son, was shot to death in the desert, in an area just North of Phoenix, Arizona. It was a horrible, senseless crime. Despite little to no evidence she had anything to do with Christopher’s death, Debra Milke was convicted of his murder and sentenced to death.

The only evidence against Debra was an alleged unrecorded confession to a police officer named Armando Saldate. Debra was convicted in what amounted to be a he said she said case between Debra and a police officer. Saldate would later be exposed as a dirty cop, racking up a laundry list of misconduct throughout his career.

The revelations about Saldate would eventually lead to Debra’s release, but irreparable damage had already been done. Debra Milke spent over 24 years in prison as an innocent person. Now she looks to build a new life in a world that looks nothing like it did when she entered prison over two decades ago.
