MANITOWOC COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) – The attorney for Steven Avery is
suggesting Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel will make an
announcement on Friday regarding the case of Brendan Dassey. On Thursday evening, Kathleen Zellner tweeted a picture of a man
holding up a sign reading, “It is over.” The tweet was deleted about 20
minutes later, but it was shared dozens of times. http://wbay.com/2016/09/01/steven-avery-attorney-announcement-friday-regarding-dassey-case/
My interest in forensic pathology began with my Toronto Star investigative reporting into once famed since disgraced former doctor Charles Smith. I began this Blog after retiring from the Star in 2006 in order to follow the aftermath into the independent Goudge inquiry into many of Smith's cases. I have now begun to focus on cases involving flawed forensic science no matter where they occur (the recent Amanda Knox prosecution in Italy, for example) and am fascinated by the interest in the Blog from people in countries throughout the world. In another development, my interest in "junk science" "pseudo-experts" and the miscarriages of justice they all too often cause has drawn me deeply into the on-going U.S. death penalty debate where so many troubling cases involve issues relating to DNA and other developments in the world of forensic science. For all of this I rely on my experience as a reporter at the Toronto Star, my work as a lawyer in Ontario's criminal courts, and my abhorrence of injustice. Please send cases and developments which may be of interest to this Blog to email@example.com. Read on! Harold Levy.
