Kevin Cooper is a death row inmate in California who was convicted of the 1983 murders of a family in Chino Hills. Cooper was sentenced to death in 1985.

Cooper has consistently maintained his innocence, and his case has garnered attention and controversy over the years. Supporters argue that there were flaws in the investigation and trial, and they point to issues such as potential evidence tampering and claims of racial bias. Additionally, there have been calls for further DNA testing on evidence from the crime scene.

The case has led to debates about the criminal justice system, the death penalty, and the possibility of wrongful convictions.
