A Murder in the Park

Description
In 1999, just hours before his scheduled execution, convicted killer Anthony Porter's life was saved by a journalism class from Northwestern University, led by renowned Innocence Project pioneer, Professor David Protess. Their re-investigation of the crime for which he was convicted-a double homicide in a Chicago park-led to the discovery of the real killer, Alstory Simon, whose confession exonerated Porter. If it all sounds too good to be true, it's because, as compellingly argued here, Porter actually is guilty, Simon is an innocent man and both are just pawns in a much larger plan.

A Murder in the Park more than convincingly presents what appears to be a gross corruption of justice, but its dry play-by-play is about as compelling as a Wikipedia article.

"A Murder in the Park," with a whopper of a twist near the end, is often mesmerizing, even as its story remains unfinished. Justice, in this case, seems to remain elusive.
