The 1984 rape and murder of a 25 year-old white woman led to the wrongful incarceration of Darryl Hunt, a black man who was 19 at the time of the crime. This series documented the flaws in the case against Hunt, showing that police used questionable tactics, causing witnesses to focus in on him as a suspect. Hunt was finally released after DNA analysis proved his innocence.
