Description

The story examines the controversies surrounding the investigation into the death of Philip True, a San Antonio Express-News writer. The report questions the freeing of the two Huichol Indians held in True's death, and finds that "the case ... highlights an often-corrupt judicial system." The article follows the chronology of the case and points to some discrepancies in the official confessions of the suspects. It also examines the complaints of the suspects that they have been "beaten and tortured by men in uniforms."
