KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) --- The State of Missouri is one of a few states that doesn't provide compensation for someone who was wrongfully convicted.
That's not stopping the rest of the world from compensating Kevin Strickland.
A GoFundMe account to help Strickland was set up Tuesday.
About 48 hours, it's hit over $1 million.
It was set up by the Missouri Innocence Project.
Strickland was released from prison this week after spending 43 years in jail for a triple-murder he did not commit.
The Missouri Innocence Project said all funds will go directly to Strickland.
Over 17,000 donations have been made since Tuesday.
