Former suspect in WSU police officer murder released from prison

A former murder suspect is now a free man.

DeAngelo Davis was released from prison just before 7 p.m. Wednesday. Davis had been arrested in the murder of Wayne State police officer Collin Rose on Nov. 22.

"I'm still innocent," he said as he walked out of the Wayne County Jail.

Earlier today a press conference was held announcing all charges had been dropped.

Davis has had run-ins with the law, but his family now believes police owe them and him - an apology.

"He's owed a public apology the way they publicly humiliated him, me also, and my family," said his mother Valerie Davis. "They public did that, and he deserves better as a human being."

Neighbors of Davis say that a leg injury prevents DeAndre Davis from riding a bicycle, which was another reason they believed he was innocent.

Rose was fatally shot at Brainard and Lincoln in the Woodbridge area of Detroit while investigating car break-ins around the area which borders the Wayne State campus.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy would not divulge details what new evidence clearing him emerged.

"None of us including you, want to jeopardize the investigation," said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy. "So we will be taking no questions."
