KGW-TV reported that Kevin Gray of Newberg was diagnosed with kidney failure in May. Lately, he’s been beside Highway 99 West with a sign reading: “Living Kidney Donor Needed. Please help.”
From death row, Christian Longo saw a report this week about Gray and offered a kidney.
On Friday, Gray said he’s not grateful and “Longo deserves no publicity from this.”
Longo was convicted in 2003 of killing his family members on the Oregon coast.
