A Murder in the Park

The wrongful conviction of innocent people is a horror and injustice that I find very hard to bear. I've been deeply grateful for the Innocence projects that have been doing such great work exonerating people.

A Murder in the Park looks at a famous exoneration in Illinois that was spearheaded by a journalist professor and his undergraduate students. This chilling documentary exposes their sloppy work and the biased determination of the professor and his private investigator to implicate someone else. In this case, the exoneree's innocence, and the guilt of the person eventually convicted for the same crime, are extremely suspect.
