A couple of months back there were several articles (I found none by any local news media) on the web regarding the outcome of an investigation by an NCIS officer. He ordered the bodies exhumed and a a second autopsy was done. His report stated that the men were not shot in the back as previously stated. He also said that there were many witnesses who backed up Pantano's version of the events, but that the original investigators chose to go on the word of just a handful of people and if I am not mistaken the investigator said that those who spoke out against Pantano had some kind of grudge against him. The main witness changed his story several times.
If is so unfortunate that the media is all gung ho when it comes to making accusations, but is not as quick to report when a person has been exonerated.
