On June 13, 1996, Angie Dodge was found brutally murdered in her Idaho Falls apartment. She had been stabbed multiple times, sexually assaulted and ejaculated upon postmortem. A dogged search by detectives yielded few clues. They took DNA samples from dozens of males in the weeks and months following the murder but found no match. Finally, after six months without leads, the police believed they got a break when Benjamin Hobbs, a friend of Angie's, was arrested in Ely, Nevada for a rape at knifepoint. Convinced of Hobbs' guilt, they questioned his friends, among them Christopher Tapp. During their quest to implicate Hobbs in Angie's murder, the police questioned Tapp for 28 hours. The grueling interrogation and their leading questions led to Tapp confessing to the crime. He was tried, found guilty, and sentenced to 30-years to life in prison. Tapp claims he's innocent and the Wrong Man team believes his case deserves another look. The videotapes of Tapp's confession show his story varying wildly from interrogation to interrogation, until finally he confesses. Our team has engaged a former LA County homicide detective, Danny Smith, to take another crack at the case. Even the victim's mother, Carol Dodge, no longer believes Tapp murdered her daughter. Carol's tenacious search has yielded new leads and multiple persons of interest that Danny examines while simultaneously conducting his own investigation to try and apprehend the real killer.

Ira Todd and Joe Kennedy land in Idaho Falls to help local investigator Danny Smith look into a case of coerced confession. After viewing videotapes of Chris' confession, even Carol Dodge believes the wrong man, Christopher Tapp, is in prison for her daughter's murder. She's spent two decades investigating the case, looking for the killer whose DNA matches what was found at the crime scene. Ira, Joe and Danny conduct a neighborhood canvass around the house where Angie was killed. Although it yields few leads, our investigators approach several persons of interest who potentially had contact with Angie. They are able to acquire DNA samples and have them tested to see if they have a match to the crime scene DNA. Meanwhile, attorneys and advocates for Tapp are preparing for two hearings that could lead to his release. Then a couple of weeks before the hearings are scheduled to take place, the prosecution offers Tapp a deal.

Tv Season Info

Berlinger's cameras follow a team of esteemed legal, investigative and forensic experts including renowned civil rights attorney Ronald Kuby, former prosecutor Sue-Ann Robinson, retired NCIS investigator Joe Kennedy, and Ira Todd, a member of Detroit's elite Homicide Task Force, as they re-investigate the cases of three inmates who have been locked up for decades and claim they are innocent. These types of wrongful conviction cases are not rare, according to the non-profit legal organization Innocence Project who estimates that up to 5 percent of all prisoners in the U.S. are convicted of crimes they did not commit. With more than 2 million people in prison, that means potentially 120,000 innocent people may be behind bars. This verité series follows investigators into prisons and to the scenes of the crimes to crack open the cases as they hunt for new evidence, track down witnesses and talk to often-reluctant law-enforcement, looking beyond guilt and innocence to expose the flaws in the criminal justice system.
