Wow simply noticed abc’s 20/20 Leah Freeman episode : TrueCrime

Simply incase somebody didnt see the episode. Mainly in 2000 a 15yr woman goes for a stroll at night time and by no means returns. Her footwear with blood was discovered 10 miles aside. Later her physique was discovered(5 weeks later)The boyfriend who’s 18 I imagine is accused and ultimately despatched to jail for almost 10 yrs.

It was a small city in Oregon the place the investigation was held. The brand new Sergeant on the scene took it upon himself to go after the boyfriend as a result of effectively he was the boyfriend. That they had zero proof of something no withnesses , no DNA, no nothing, The trial jurors convicted him 2-10 responsible. I’m assuming as a result of it is a small city in all probability alot of biased and small mindedness.

Yrs after being imprisoned and getting a wrongful convicted legal professional extra proof comes out. It reveals one other man’s DNA. He ultimately will get out after serving 90 % of his sentence. He cannot discover a job & missed his daughter develop up.

However such a botched case. The county legal professional and the sergeant actually simply didnt do any actual investigating and went to the simplest route which was the boyfriend. They by no means decided the precise explanation for demise they do not know if she was hit by a automobile or attacked. There was paint chips on her shirt that didnt match the boyfriends automobile, they thought it was nothing to look into. The DNA lab didnt even disclose the unknown DNA to the courts…I imply actually? That couldve modified all the pieces. Cops didnt pursue discovering the true suspect, they wont admit they had been incorrect.

Hopefully this man sues this county. It’s a horrible investigation the place he spent virtually a decade in jail.
