RE: 20/20 Sept. 17, 2010

I appreciated the fact that your 'documentary' included recent comments from both Billy Richardson (one of North Carolina's finest criminal lawyers) and Scott Whisnant (author of 'Innocent Victims').

It's a shame that it seemed to be biased in favor of Gary Eastman, who has NEVER (and perhaps understandably) been even slightly objective about Timothy Hennis.

What the program failed to point out is that during Hennis' second trial (the one that ultimately freed him) Billy Richardson and Gerry Beaver disproved every bit of circumstantial evidence that the prosecution had presented in the first trial.

Ultimately, all of the circumstantial evidence (and there was a lot of it) proved that Tim Hennis couldn't have committed the murder. And now the military has placed him back on death row with 'new' DNA evidence 20 years later?
