Reporter's work leads to review of murder conviction

A report by Christine Young of the Times Herald-Record in Middletown, NY, in a special eight-page supplement and online multi-media presentation, suggests strongly that a New York City man who is borderline mentally retarded was wrongfully convicted of murder in 1989. Thanks to Young's reporting—and a bizarre set of circumstances that thrust her into the investigation 20 years ago— the Manhattan District Attorney's Office is re-opening the case and reviewing the conviction. Young's reporting raises questions about false confessions, sloppy police tactics and raises the prospect that police ignored evidence pointing to a serial killer of New York City prostitutes.
