Description

Hansen's one-page handout sums up his investigation that won the IRE medal for radio this year. When Jane Marie Fray was found brutally murdered, police moved quickly to arrest her boyfriend Ricky Almosch. WJR Radio began looking at facts and circumstances that police had either ignored or not found. The investigation and a number of court hearings eventually led to the dismissal of all charges, ending Amolsch's 10-month imprisonment and a renewed quest for the real killer. To order a tape and/or transcript of Hansen's winning broadcast, ask for file #12837.Although Martin Yant (Ohio Observer) was unable to attend the session, his article about the wrongful conviction of a young Dayton couple who spent 11 years in prison for sexual abuse is included in this packet. Audio tape available through the IRE Resource Center at (573) 882-3364 or rescntr@ ire.org. Ask for tape #IRE96-43.
