The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals decided to stop Rodney Reed's execution on Friday after a campaign assisted in the efforts.

However, the jubilation around his case has tempered in recent days as more people have looked into Reed's past and uncovered six separate sexual assault cases identifying him as a suspect.

His supporters, many of whom are on both sides of the political aisle, say biased police may have embellished the charges against him in order to make the case more of a slam dunk. Others have said Reed was well known in Bastrop, Texas, for accosting and assaulting multiple women.

Reed's lawyer, Bryce Benjet told TIME that Reed was charged and acquitted in only one of the sexual assault cases he was accused of.

Court records and local news reports show that the mother of Reed's children filed charges against him in 1991 saying he attacked her and raped her. She dropped the charges weeks later according to local news outlet KXAN.

In another case, Linda Schlueter picked Reed out in a lineup accusing him of kidnapping and trying to rape her before she broke free.

After he was arrested, police ran his DNA through a system and got matches on four other cases. Two were rapes where the victims were unable to identify the perpetrator, one that happened under a bridge and another involving a 12-year-old girl

Ultimately, the 51-year-old was convicted in 1996 of the abduction, rape and murder of 19-year-old Stacey Stites. Reed has consistently denied killing Stites, claiming they were having an affair that her fiancé, former Bastrop, Texas, police officer Jimmy Fennell, disapproved of. 

For 18 years, Benjet has argued that there was an avalanche of evidence implicating Fennell as the 19-year-old's killer. Benjet has secured dozens of new statements and pieces of evidence making it clear Fennell not only killed Stites but had help from other Bastrop officers in covering up her death.

His case made national news as his execution date, November 20, approached and stars like Rihanna, Meek Mill and Kim Kardashian tweeted their support.

"In this era of add water activism, it is very easy to fall for mass movements in directions of both cancelation and/or exoneration. I apologize for my error in rushing to the aid of this cause without knowledge of the full scope," Amanda Seales wrote on Instagram.

"I will be more mindful in the future. Be wary, be watchful, be wise. These are unseemly times," she added. 

Since Seales apologized for her support of the case, people on Twitter have started to debate Reed's past.
