A triumvirate of Pulitzer-winning reporters spent years in supporting a victim of a misguided prosecution aided by willful misconduct by Chicago police. A retrospective article on what the reporters experienced with the wrongfully convicted Daniel Taylor, written by Maurice Possley, appears in THE ATLANTIC. Thanks for the tip from Mark Godsey at the Wrongful Convictions blog.
I know the reporters. Maurice Possley and Steve Mills through their investigative efforts to reveal the misuse of forensic testimony to convict the innocent. In particular, they joined forces in the 2004 Chi Tribune series article (with Flynn McRoberts) on the now debunked (by the US National Research Council in 2009) bite-mark experts. Read that article “From the Start, a Faulty Science.”
They never quit.
