    Why Kim Kardashian Is Pleading A Case For A Triple Homicide Convict?

    Kim Kardashian is following in the footsteps of her father Late Robert Kardashian Sr. by taking her legal studies seriously. The ‘SKIMS’ founder has been an advocate of prison reforms for years. Previously, she helped release Alice Johnson from federal prison.

    Kim, along with Lori Rothschild Ansaldi, has launched their true crime podcast. During this eight-episode series, Kim will narrate the story of Keith, a convicted criminal of a triple homicide in 1994. Ansaldi has been on the case for nearly three decades. The Keith family has given their all to get Kevin out of the prison.

    During an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Kim was asked what intrigued her to follow the case post the Celebrity Family Feud episode. She answered, “Well, the main thing that really stuck out was that someone can be convicted of a crime, let alone a triple homicide, without any physical evidence linking him to the crime and he was sentenced to death.”

    Kim also recalled talking to the Governor of Ohio about the case: “So, we spoke to the governor later on in the season, and [he tells us] how he regrets his decision, and he wishes he could do more now, but he ended up commuting his sentence to life without the possibility of parole. So, Kevin’s been in for 28 years for a crime that I believe he didn’t commit, and what got me was his brother.”

    Robert, Kevin’s brother took the responsibility for the family and is helping Kevin fight with no money. She said, “Wow, that’s what I would do for someone in my family, and that’s really what connected me to it. I wanted to tell the story from their side, too.”

    Kim emphasized why she wanted to tell the story on a platform like Spotify rather than on her Instagram. She said, “Ultimately, everyone wants to feel safe in our society. So, if people are going to feel comfortable and support causes of letting people out [of prison], and obviously policy has to change in order for that to happen, I think storytelling is key.”

    About not opting for Instagram, she argued that “Sometimes it’s too long for people’s attention spans and they’re not going to be following the story.”

    The Kardashian continued, “I thought what better place to really have my opportunity to tell a story at length and in-depth than on a platform like Spotify, which is best in class for audio storytelling and has the reach? It also allows me to dive into all the details and share so much of the audio and compile it all together, as opposed to just sharing like I’ve typically done in the past on social media.”

    She also shared the long-term goal if the story strikes a chord with people. Kim said, “It’s not officially locked in, but it’s another Kevin — the case of Kevin Cooper, which I’ve been working on for a very long time. Ultimately, the goal is to shake s**t up.”

    The ultimate goal is “The more that people hear about [the case], the more maybe people will come out with some new information that they didn’t feel comfortable sharing before. You never know what can happen when you create noise.”
