Part 1: Wrong­ly Con­vict­ed Of Mur­der And The Secret Rea­sons Why

Glen Assoun spent near­ly 17 years in prison for a mur­der he didn’t com­mit. But even after his sen­tence was over­turned, the evi­dence that freed him remained sealed. Reporters fought suc­cess­ful­ly to have that evi­dence released. What they found not only rais­es ques­tions about the inves­ti­ga­tion, but reveals the out­right dele­tion of evi­dence point­ing to anoth­er killer.

Tim Bous­quet of The Hal­i­fax Exam­in­er fought for trans­paren­cy in this case, along­side the CBC and the Cana­di­an Press. You can read all of his report­ing here.
