Description

During a childhood sleepover, nine-year-old Jessi Becker glimpses a woman sobbing and lighting black candles and the image is seared deep in her memory. Decades later she reveals what she saw, reigniting an investigation into the unsolved murder of local bartender Corey Wieneke. Keith Morrison reports. Originally aired on NBC on January 17, 2020.

I cannot believe the DA went forward with a case based on such insufficient evidence. And there is physical evidence sitting in an evidence locker untested. This is a disgrace on the legal system. They proved nothing in that courtroom. Ridiculous.

So let me get this straight... They had absolutely no evidence that this woman had anything to do with the murder, except for this single memory- that couldn't even be corroborated by the other child supposedly involved in said memory- from 20 years ago, and all the evidence that these people legit had it out for this woman from the beginning... Something tells me the jury were handsomely paid for the conviction. this entire case smells like bullshit.

this is the most ridiculous bullshit I've ever heard. trials supposedly exist to prevent convictions based on hearsay and random, baseless accusations. they presented no actual evidence whatsoever that that woman killed anyone
