Susan King served nearly seven years behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit. Then in 2012, another man confessed to that crime. In November 1998, a fisherman found the body of 40-year-old Kyle Breeden in the Kentucky River near Gratz, Kentucky. He had been shot in the head twice with .22 caliber magnum bullets and his legs were bound with guitar amplifier cord. He had last been seen October 26, 1998. Kentucky State Police was never able to solve the crime. Almost eight years later, Detective Todd Harwood made it his mission to solve the cold case. He pinned the murder on Susan King who had dated Breeden on and off for some time. The detective claimed King threw a 200-pound body over a bridge. But that was impossible because King only has one leg and she only weighed 90 pounds. Then in 2012, the actual murderer confessed to the crime.
