Shaurn Thomas, a black man who was freed for murder in Philadelphia by the Innocence Project and given $4 million in restitution by the state, allegedly became a drug dealer upon release, killed a man for owing him a $1,200 drug debt and told his accomplice it was his "third" homicide.
Shaurn Thomas was a millionaire, but prosecutors say he killed a man over a $1,200 drug debt.
Thomas was paid more than $4 million three years ago after spending 24 years behind bars for a murder conviction that was later overturned.
And yet, a witness said in court Monday, he fatally shot a man on a North Philadelphia street corner earlier this year over the comparatively paltry sum.
The video above was recorded adter his release.
