Hank Skinner; Texas; Douglas Prade; Ohio: Pre-eminent criminal defence blogger Joe Gamso writes a masterful tale of "Two Murders, Two Cities, Too Little Regard For DNA," on the Mimesis Law (Fault Lines) Blog.

PUBLISHER'S NOTE: Occasionally I come across a post which defies synopsis, is beautifully written and  cries out to be read word by word. "Two Murders, Two Cities, Too Little Regard For DNA" by Joe Gamso, is  a case in point.

I challenge the reader two guess which of the two men this might be. Read on!
