  • Erick Daniels in a visitor's room at Foothills Correctional Institution, where he's serving a 10- to 14-year sentence.

In a case without a shred of incriminating physical or forensic evidence to be tested or examined, it's nearly impossible to conclusively prove Erick Daniels' innocence. But an Independent investigation shows that there is abundant evidence to support Daniels' claims of innocence, and more than enough questions, contradictions and problems to constitute reasonable doubt.

Hear Erick Daniels talk about his experience.

From our May 23, 2007, cover story "Stolen youth" by Mosi Secret.
