In 1998, a group of university students re-investigated the case, and seemingly found the real killer, Alstory Simon. Simon confessed to the crimes, and Porter was released and pardoned, his harrowing ordeal shook the public's confidence in the justice system and led the Governor to vacate the sentences of all Illinois death row inmates.

Very good documentary. a lot of interesting twist, turns and plots. Too bad the man who ended up being convicted of a crime that the former person jailed for it truly did commit was a horrible act created by a professor and his inexperience students. Every college student who studies criminal justice and/or law needs to take a page out of this story since it is definitely a lesson to be learned.
