Kim Kardashian visits prisoner Kevin Cooper sentenced to death in San Quentin prison: report



Kim Kardashian reportedly spent two hours at San Quentin State Prison in California on Thursday as part of her efforts to exonerate death row inmate Kevin Cooper.

The image of the reality show star appeared in the prison dressed in black to meet with Cooper, 61, who has been on death row since his 1985 conviction, TMZ reported exclusively on Friday.

Kardashian, whose recent campaign for President Trump to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson was successful, has been interested in further exonerating the inmates involved in other controversial cases.

She spoke for the first time about Cooper in a tweet last October, where she encouraged former California Governor Jerry Brown to re-run DNA tests on the case.

Cooper says he was framed for the murders of Doug and Peggy Ryen in 1983, his 10-year-old daughter Jessica and her 11-year-old neighbor Christopher. The family and the neighbor had been brutally attacked with multiple weapons, including an ax, a knife and a handle, while their 8-year-old son survived.
