Investigating Innocence Takes on New Case
The local organization Investigating Innocence is taking on the case of a former Indiana state trooper convicted of killing his family. The group agreed to take David Camm's case because recently, another man's DNA and palm print were linked to the crime scene where Camm's family was killed. Despite the evidence, authorities refuse to budge, keeping Camm in prison.
The woman working on the case said it's the duty of the criminal justice system to find the truth.
"Once the truth is found, they need to not try to put an innocent man in jail," advocacy director Bridget Norris said. "He's already grieving the loss of his family. They're doing more damage than good."
Investigating Innocence is similar to the Downstate Innocence Project, except Investigating Innocence takes cases from all over the country--not just Illinois.
