Unfortunately for Avery, that wasn’t going to be his only bad encounter with justice. On October 31, 2005, photographer Teresa Halbach was scheduled to meet with Steven Avery at his home on the grounds of Avery 's Auto Salvage to photograph a minivan for Auto Trader Magazine. She went missing the same day.On November 11, Avery was charged with the murder of Halbach after her car and overdone bone fragments were found at the salvage yard. He upheld that authorities were attempting to frame him for Halbach 's vanishing to make it harder for him to win his pending civil case regarding the false sexual assault conviction. To avoid a conflict of interest, Mark R. Rohrer, the Manitowoc County district attorney, requested that authorities from bordering Calumet County lead the investigation.
It’s mind blowing how the justice sentence can convict somebody solely off an eye witness testimony, especially if the eye-witness isn’t accurate. “Eyewitness misidentification is the greatest contributing factor to wrongful convictions proven by DNA testing, playing a role in more than 70% of convictions overturned through DNA testing nationwide.’’ (Eyewitness Misindentification,2017) Immediately after reporting the crime, the victim was taken to a hospital where a rape kit was administered, and swabs were taking from her body. Days after the rape the victim was also shown two photo lineups of suspects, however she didn’t identify anyone. Following the attack, the victim moved from San Antonio to Dallas. The case remained unsolved for a little over a year, that was until Dallas detectives mailed another photo line up to the victim in San Antonio, where she subsequently chose Lindsey as her alleged rapist.

I have… certain skills that helped me find the man, but with no evidence it was useless to go to the law.’’ Before he continued I managed to ask: ‘’How does that explain 56 murders?’’ Marston looked up at me for a second before answering: ‘’Have you ever heard the phrase; ‘an eye for an eye’?’’ I nodded the affirmative before he continued: ‘’An eye for an eye, a world for a world. He took my wife from me and let me suffer, I was going to take his back. Every family, friend, or colleague. Every part of his world, as he would suffer like I did while realizing that this horror was his doing.’’ A long pause followed his monologue as the only sound was his heavy breathing, I responded with nothing but silence for a while before gathering my thoughts and continuing: ‘’Tell me something, your track record shows that you could have easily avoided the police and walked free after you were done. You didn’t even try to, being a free man was an option but you deliberately turned yourself in after all this,
This quote shows that Wilson believes the driver of the car that killed Myrtle was performing an act of murder. This revelation and earlier discovery of his wife’s affair pushes him to the brink of reality, and he believes there is no solution other than to avenge his wife’s death. Consequently, he later finds and murders Gatsby whom he believes to be the killer. The difference in the context of Tom and Wilson’s acts of violence demonstrate the differences in their
As stated in the Marshall Inquiry there is a list of findings that the commissioners developed that proved that Marshall was wrongfully convicted. “Marshall was Native which was a factor in his wrongful conviction and imprisonment. Marshall did tell the truth about the events when first interviewed by the police about the stabbing but later in the trial being accused of perjury when he made his testimony. Immediate police response and the investigation done by MacIntyre were inadequate, incompetent, and unprofessional. MacIntyre without any evidence made Marshall the main suspect and accepted only evidence that supported that theory.

Some of you may not be aware that the death penalty still exists in multiple countries, and others may support it. But yes, it is a thing and one that more people should be involved in.

By using logic and reasoning, Mr. Carpenter discovers the reason why Sondra almost got murdered twice. The alexandrite locket Sondra took from Rosalie after she was murdered contained a picture that “looks like Rosalie” and was assumed to be Rosalie’s mother which was more than enough evidence for Mr. Carpenter and his team to search for the missing evidence to solve the mystery. Tracing back from previous evidence, Mr. Carpenter concludes that Eliot Kendall is the person who is responsible for all the murders. By using Edgar Allan Poe’s device, Mr. Carpenter reveals to the audience who the murderer
Suddenly you’re thrust into a murder trial, and you’re the main suspect. This horror is Adnan Syed’s reality. Wrongfully accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee in 1999, Adnan Syed should be released due to conviction by uncreditable evidence, unclear witness statements, and unfair representation. First off, Adnan could not have committed this crime because the 2:36 “kill time” is basically impossible with Adnan’s alibi(Koenig, “Route Talk”). There was a very small window of time for Adnan to commit the murder and make the call at 2:36.
