In 1987, 21-year-old guitarist Leo Schofield was pursuing his rockstar dreams when his teenage wife Michelle was found dead in a phosphate mining pit in Lakeland, Florida. Two years later, Leo was convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the murder he has always denied. Fifteen years after Leo’s conviction, previously unidentified fingerprints from Michelle’s car matched Jeremy Scott—a troubled teen with an extensive history of violence who lived near the young couple at the time. Jeremy has now confessed to Michelle’s murder. Yet Leo Schofield remains behind bars. Bone Valley is a chilling story of murder and the miscarriage of justice. In his three-year investigation, host Gilbert King peels open the layers of this case and uncovers startling new evidence that Jeremy is responsible for yet another murder – his fourth – and one that has remained unsolved...until now. With heartrending clarity and suspense, Bone Valley exposes the catastrophic flaws in the American criminal justice system, documenting the story of these two men in their desperate search for truth and redemption. This groundbreaking true crime podcast series returns King to central Florida, where his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Devil in the Grove led to the exonerations of the Groveland Four. https://lavaforgood.com/bone-valley/ Bone Valley is a production of Lava for Good Podcasts in association with Signal Co.

Wow so sad that there is an innocent man, behind bars, and all this mountain of evidence screaming he didn’t do it. And they won’t hear it. God please make this guy justice. I will pray about this case. So sad.

Such a good podcast, but the editing is really terrible. This last episode especially jumps all over the place. Hopefully it can be redone.

To be driven to the point of being ready and willing to commit the same crime of which you were wrongfully convicted is such a tragedy, and such an indictment of the system that allowed such a travesty to occur. Leo's strength, to come away from that and instead seek to forgive and pray for forgiveness and love for the actual crimial, is astonishing.

Lawyers, judges, and prosecutors are just another good ole boy's club. They seem to be just as corrupt as police officers.

Grady Judd is the biggest show boat in Florida. I'll bet he had an orgasm when you asked him for an interview. I'm sure he was a bit sad it's a podcast because he never misses a chance to get in front of a camera.
