The bitemarkers claim they will assist in the now pending review of all their cases. Lets just say that their days of credibility as “scientific experts” are over.

This article talks about the conviction and execution of David Wayne Spence. The bitemark evidence used in this case is remarkably bad.

“It’s going to be an enormous undertaking that the Innocence Project will assist with,” says Fabricant. “It should have stopped dozens of years ago, unless and until it can be scientifically validated.”
