Christian Longo, From Killer to Life Saver

Written by Associated Press on March 20, 2014

Christian Longo killed his family in 2001, and now after seeing KGW’s story on Kevin Gray, he wants to donate his kidney to save a life. Gray has been working a street corner with a sign asking for someone to donate a kidney. Longo wrote an email to KGW’s Katherine Cook and said that he and other inmates would like to help out…

“I just think it’s a shame that the Kevin Grays of the world have to resort to standing on a street corner to find a kidney, when there are millions of inmates and others who would like to donate.”

Longo help launch a non-profit to help inmates donate organs. It’s currently not against the law to do so, but it’s rarely allowed. Gray says he’d be OK with it…. “If there healthy and they can donate… I see nothing wrong with it.”
