Students investigate 23-year-old murder case

Students from the Missouri School of Journalism led by Steve Weinberg, a former director of IRE, spent months researching DNA testing, digging up court testimony and interviewing witnesses to report on a St. Louis case which had been controversially re-opened in 2003. The report is a detailed account of the 1982 murder of JoAnn Clenney Tate and the subsequent conviction of the accused, Rodney Lincoln. "The 23-year-old murder case is controversial because of inconsistent witness testimony and a three-year feud between the daughters of the victim and the convicted murderer, with the former wanting to re-open the case and the latter opposing the motion. " The students gathered background information, chronologies, photographs and more to produce a story that ran in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
