Two Mississippi men spent a combined 30 years in prison for crimes they didn’t commit. They were separately charged with sexually assaulting and murdering two 3-year-old girls — in two separate crimes — two years apart. The pathologist who conducted both autopsies said he suspected the girls had been bitten. In both cases only top teeth marks were found. Link to the video here.
Life and death consequences result from believing what isn’t true. For two convicted murderers in Mississippi, only the efforts of The Innocence Project rescued them from death row.
I hope someone will research the topic of capital convictions overturned by DNA evidence.
