I’m Ready To Tell The Truth About My Interviews With Graham Welsh, The Man Found Innocent After 20 Years On Death Row

ME: Were you familiar with the cases eventually tied to John Cole when you were accused?

GRAHAM: I’ve been accused of a lot of things sweetie. A selfish lover has never been one of them though.

Graham takes an audible suck off his fourth whiskey of the interview.

ME: I’m not quite sure if I know what that means.

GRAHAM: Some fellas will be like…go down on me…go down on me, and then never want to give it back. That ain’t me.


GRAHAM: And I ain’t fuckin around. I’ll suck the toilet paper off a bean, I don’t care.

ME: I think that’s enough for the day.

Graham was beyond shit faced at this point. I bid adieu with only one sip missing from my bottle of Budweiser and headed to the door. I decided this would be my only interview with Graham.

That was until I got out into my car.

I jumped and screamed when someone knocked on the window of my Escape as soon as I fired the engine.


I looked out the window and saw one of the old timers from the bar standing in the twilight of the setting sun.

I locked the doors. The old timer shook his head – his Rebels hat fell to the ground.
