The Darlie Routier Case
Types of wrongful conviction: Rush to judgment/tunnel vision; prosecutorial misconduct; flawed jury instructions; and a media massacre
"...Over the years, numerous news stories and an ongoing investigation by Darlie's appellate attorneys have raised questions about what really happened that night: Could it be that the police and the prosecutors manipulated the evidence to implicate someone they decided must have done it? A growing chorus of observers of the case believes so. At least half a dozen Web sites have been set up to proclaim Darlie's innocence (one of them, fordarlieroutier.org, has received more than seven and a half million hits since January 2000). A juror from her original trial now says that he and his fellow jurors made the wrong decision. The author of one of the true-crime books has also changed her mind, claiming the jury heard perjured testimony and was never shown photos that would have proved Darlie was a victim of a savage attack." https://www.texasmonthly.com/true-crime/maybe-darlie-didnt-do-it/
The only photos reportedly seen by the jury, according to one of the jurors.
