Description

Dateline investigated a 1990 murder at the Palladium nightclub, of which two men were wrongly convicted. Two detectives sought to re-open the case but were turned down by the Manhattan DA. Dateline obtained an interview with a "third shooter" suspect; afterward the two incarcerated men were exonerated and the interviewee was arrested. The New York Times cited the story in an editorial calling for the release of the two innocent convicts.
