Jay Biggs is innocent,
fighting for justice
Jay was a hard working husband and father, married, had 2 babies, A son 15 months old and a daughter 5 months old. He put his children to bed one night and the next morning He got ready for work, on his way downstairs, the house was cold, he remembered that the children's bedroom window was open and went to shut it, when he went in the room he saw a blanket over his daughters head, he went to her but it was too late, she was gone. 911 was called. After the Corners office took Jaydee, Jay and his wife went to the police station, answered questions, gave hand swab samples and waited. The same day the children services called Jay and told him that they felt that Jay and his wife needed to send their older child home with Jay's parents. Jay and Diana saw a custody lawyer the next morning.
Crazy stories started in the newspaper about Jay and his wife. The next day children services took Jay's son to foster care for a month. Jay was never allowed to see his son again to this day. His sister in-law eventually got guardianship.
After a couple of months Jay found out through a newspaper report that his daughter's death was ruled a homicide. 2 years later while at work, Jay was arrested and charged with rape and homicide of his daughter. At the trial Jay's expert witness said that the damage that a deputy corner said was a sign of rape was actually caused by the improper exam that that deputy doctor did, he used a nasal spectrum and which matches exactly with the "bruises" that he said is the damage. Dr. Warner Spitz (Jay's expert witness) "the world’s most respected forensic pathologist” said that Jaydee died from SIDS and there was no rape but the jury of local people decided different and found Jay guilty. Jaydee had dried vomit on her face, Dr. Spitz believes she choked on her vomit and died.
Jay is now serving life without the possibility of parole. There are so many more details that I have not mentioned, such as the corner's detective said he saw blood on Jaydee, that's why he called the deputy corner but there was no blood found in Jaydee's diaper, or on her clothes, or the bassinet. They never secured the room Jaydee died in, and while later in the week before we buried Jaydee, we were all at court for a custody hearing for Jay's son, the police busted in his house, tore everything apart, left rubber gloves stuffed in the decorative flower vases hanging on the wall, and left the search warrant on a table, there were a lot of things like that, that they did. There was no physical evidence found, none presented at court, there was a 5 inch hair found in the diaper, it was not tested (most likely because it did not match Jay's) Jay had short hair. They could have checked for finger prints on the diaper tabs but they did not.
Jay Biggs is innocent.
He was not home alone the day of his daughter's death, his wife Diana Collins Biggs was home with him the entire day and night, she testified that he put the children to bed and came right back downstairs less than 5 minutes later.
He was facing the death penalty: they offered him a deal of 15 years. His father and I were allowed to go into the judge's chambers and talk with him about the deal, he said " I did not do this". He did not take the deal he had a jury trial. Jay got life without the possibility of parole.
They arrested Jay two years after his daughter died, they had many stories in their small town newspaper during these two years, and the newspaper even did an online poll to see if people thought that Jay or his wife should be arrested. Then the TV news stations picked up the story at Jay’s time of arrest (we had reporters knocking at our door)
Before Jay even went to trial people already decided, he was guilty. The comment section of the newspapers was full of hateful and vile things that should happen to Jay before he even had his trial. People hear and read about a crime against a baby and they do not even listen to the facts of the case.
So now, we are fighting to get Jay out of prison, he is currently working on a couple of legal avenues. We believe that the truth will be seen that Jay is an innocent man in prison.
Please keep us in your prayers and thanks for the support. The Biggs Family
Biggs, 24, of Clinton, told Brown he is innocent and will appeal. He asked Brown to consider granting him the possibility of parole.
"You did give me a fair trial, but fair isn't always just," Biggs said. "You cited it yourself when you told the jury that you don't have to believe everyone's testimony. ... I don't know what I could have done. I told the truth. I was offered a deal, but I didn't take it because I thought the truth would set me free."
