Society of Professional Journalists – Jon Marshall’s News Gems - "Presumed Guilty"
Miles Moffeit of the Denver Post has written a searing story about a Colorado boy convicted of murder using dubious circumstantial evidence. Moffeit's "Revisiting a Conviction" masterfully retraces the investigation and prosecution of Tim Masters, who was 15 at the time of the 1987 killing and now sits in a Colorado prison. Moffeit then describes the efforts of people trying to get Masters released and details the DNA samples and other evidence that point toward his innocence. The result is an account that shows how police and prosecutors can go terribly off track. The story has a sharp point of view, which I think makes it stronger.

A Gripping Mystery, and an Outrageous Miscarriage of Justice
You’re going to want to read this.
When I was an undergrad at Colorado State in Ft. Collins, the county was prosecuting a man for a previously unsolved murder, 20 years prior. I thought there wasn’t much evidence against him, and I thought he got a raw deal at trial, where he was convicted and sentenced to life.
But only now do I realize that he is completely innocent, and the victim of an injustice at the least, and probably an outright coverup.
