Petitions Signed

Many witnesses have reported seeing Ron Levin alive after the date of his supposed murder, leading Joe's defense team to conclude that, "He's a fugitive, not a corpse."

Being out on bail and wanted on major criminal charges, Levin, a notorious con artist, would have ample reason to fake his own death.

Unfortunately, jurors never learned that Levin:

  • Was free on bail, but facing 12 criminal charges and an FBI investigation
  • Was raped in prison during a previous incarceration, and swore he would "never go back"
  • Restructured his already-made bail arrangements at considerable cost, freeing his parents of potential liability
Where is Ron Levin?

The body of Ron Levin, the man Joe Hunt allegedly murdered, has never been found. Learn more about the Ron Levin mystery.
