On his first birthday as a free man in 23 years, Ricky Kidd sees a transformed Kansas City

By WDAF-TV, Kansas City 8 hrs ago

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A lot has changed since Ricky Kidd was locked up and then released into what seems like a whole new world.

t's been three and a half weeks since he walked out of the Western Missouri Correctional Center. Now, he's free for the first time in 23 years after having been wrongfully convicted for a double murder in 1996.

. . .

"Missing out on a city being reborn, but the good news is I am here and I am going to engage the next 23 years fully and joyfully," Kidd said.

. . .

"I get to create new memories," Kidd said. A lot of people see me upbeat, joyful -- and I am. That is a genuine reflection, but sometimes it is sad.
