According to TMZ, Kim spoke with Reed from the death row last week to discuss his scheduled killing on November 20.
The reality TV star hopes to stop his killing because there are new witnesses and evidence to exonerate Reed and identify the alleged real killer.
After publicly tweeting her support of Reed, his brother, Rodrick, posted a thank you note to Kim on Monday, saying:
"I want you to know you are a major God-send to my family - more than you may ever fully realize in this lifetime. You are a blewssing to all the families you advocate for. We're so glad you have publicly voiced that you also believe he is innocent."
Reed was convicted for the murder of Stacey Stites, and he's maintained his innocence for more than two decades. Recently, a former inmate claimed that the real murderer was actually Stites' fiance, who was angry that she was "sleeping around."
Kim Kardashian-West tackling Reed's case is only one of the many that she's worked on in the past couple of months. The reality TV star has been studying law to try and make prison reform deals with various states in the US.
In fact, aside from rallying to free inmates that were wrongfully prosecuted, she also revealed that she would love to open up a firm and hire formerly incarcerated people once she's officially a lawyer.
"I would love to open up a firm and hire formerly incarcerated people that have spent so much time having to fight for their lives inside."
She concludes saying people who "know law the best are the people that are spending time in prison."
