Purpose of this site

To proclaim the truth about Jordan Holm, former prisoner at Anamosa State Penitentiary in Anamosa, Iowa. Hopefully we can answer questions about who Jordan is, how this happened, and what is being done to fight for his exoneration. Jordan’s family, friends, and nearly everyone else who has reviewed the case files and the DNA evidence firmly believe in Jordan’s innocence. We also believe in our judicial system and we are certain that justice will prevail in Jordan’s case. For now we wait and hope and pray this will happen as soon as possible.
