This extensive series by reporters at the Chicago Tribune looks at the erroneous forensic evidence used to convict innocent people of vicious crimes. The investigation looks at the unreliability of some areas of forensic science, including DNA testing, fingerprinting, arson theories, and dental comparisons. As a result of the groundbreaking series, two inmates will be released because of faulty forensic analyses and several pending criminal appeals are using the report as evidence.
