71-year-old member of Louisiana's "Angola Three" inmates, who spent 41 years in solitary confinement died today, just days after being freed.
Herman Wallace, who had liver cancer, died at a supporter's home in New Orleans, his attorneys said.
'One of the final things that Herman said to us was, "I am free. I am free",' they said.
Before he was released from prison on Tuesday and granted a new trial, Wallace had been at a prison hospital.
Jackie Sumell, a longtime supporter of Wallace, said he was surrounded by friends and family when he died.
At one point Wallace told them, 'I love you all,' she said, adding that he was 'in and out of consciousness'.
