Tune in for an in-depth conversation about the David Camm case. Our guest will be wrongful conviction advocate Lynne Blanchard. We will be taking calls from listeners in the final segment. 

David Camm is a former Indiana State Trooper that was wrongfully convicted in March of 2002 for the murder of his wife and two children in September of 2000. Camm's conviction was secured by faulty blood spatter evidence that has now been discredited. Blood evidence was mistakenly interpreted as high velocity impact spatter by a crime scene photographer who had no formal training or experience in bloodstain analysis.

On the evening of the murders, Camm returned home from playing basketball to find his family murdered in the garage of their home. The blood evidence found on Camm's shirt was not impact spatter. The truth is Camm's shirt came in contact with his daughter's blood soaked hair as he frantically tried to remove his fatally wounded son from the vehicle in an attempt to save him.

Forensic science would later identity the real killer, Charles Boney. Boney has been rightfully convicted of the crime and is currently serving a 225 year prison term.

Camm's first conviction was thrown out in August of 2004 by the Court of Appeals. In February of 2005, DNA found on a sweatshirt at the scene led police to career criminal, Charles Boney. Instead of admitting past mistakes, prosecutor Henderson then decided to charge Camm and Boney as co-conspirators in the murders. Both were convicted with Boney receiving 225 years in prison and Camm receiving life without parole. In June of 2009, Camm's conviction was overturned again, this time by the Indiana Supreme Court.

Camm is currently being tried for a third time, despite the fact that he has eleven witnesses all stating that he was playing basketball at the time of the murders, and the fact that the actual killer is now in prison.
