Betty Tyson, who was incarcerated for 25 years before being released on bail after being charged with taking part in the murder of a visiting businessman in Rochester in 1973, passed away on Thursday at the age of 75.

She was a very compassionate and caring person, according to playwright and author Eve Ensler. She possessed the power to change any circumstance, to turn poison into medicine, to turn suffering into joy, and to find a way to outsmart any system while remaining unaffected by it.

Who was Betty Tyson?

The age of Betty Tyson was 75. In May 1998, Tyson was finally allowed to leave prison. When she was finally set free, she had served 25 years in prison, earning the regrettable distinction of being New York’s longest-serving prisoner. Throughout her entire time in prison, she adamantly maintained her innocence.

While confined inside the walls of Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, she remarkably gained the respect and favor of both her fellow prisoners and the prison staff.

Tyson was recently hospitalized for a serious heart attack and was receiving life support.

Betty Tyson’s exoneration attracted interest from across the nation, garnering headlines in important newspapers and in-depth coverage on television programs, including an episode of ABC’s “20/20.”

Within the walls of Bedford Hills, the only maximum-security prison for women in the state, Ms. Tyson was well-known for her desire to assist newly imprisoned women in overcoming the challenges of prison life.

She was honest and kind, and she cared about people who knew a lot less about how to cope. I was one of those people who knew nothing about how to cope in prison, according to Karen Thomas, Tyson’s roommate at Bedford Hills. She was astute and willing to impart her knowledge. I would have had much less knowledge of how to survive. She had a quality that made me trust her, and what she was telling me was not intended to benefit herself.
