"The case of a north suburban woman currently serving a 31-year sentence for the murder of a 16-month-old child at the daycare where she once worked, has taken an unexpected turn. A doctor who previously told jurors that Melissa Calusinski was responsible for what he called the child’s violent death, may have never even examined the body. A deputy coroner told the court that Dr. Maneul Montez — who testified at trial that he examined the boy and manipulated the skull fracture — wasn’t telling the truth.........“Montez made it all up,” defense attorney Kathleen Zellner said. “He said ‘I don’t need to look at an x-ray to see if there’s a skull fracture ‘cause I felt it.’ Well, he didn’t feel it.” A local pediatric nueroradiologist says Montez couldn’t have felt the skull, because the x-rays show there was no skull fracture. When asked if it could be a wrongful conviction since the x-rays show there was no skull fracture, Dr. Robert Allen Zimmerman, a pediatric radiologist, said Calusinski’s confession couldn’t be true, because her description of what happened simply doesn’t match the injuries. Asked whether Calusinski deserves a new trial, Zimmerman says, “I’m no lawyer I guess the answer is yes.”.........Meanwhile, the hearing to determine whether Calusinski gets a new trial continues Friday."
