Nice article on innocence investigation
Here is an article titled "Is Convicted Murderer Really a Victim?" reporting on the Rhodes case, which has been investigated by Ron Sylvester from the Wichita Eagle and Rebecca Woodman and her wrongful convictions class at Washburn Law School. (Here is a previous blog entry on the team-up). There is also a link to their live chat on the issue from Monday. The article does a nice job of describing the proof discrepancies and the problems associated with trying to prove or disprove innocence when the evidence is lost or destroyed.
