1) All of the statements by prosecutors/judges are defensive, rather than informative (e.g. "there is a web of evidence here that is credible and comprehensive"). 2) Is there a motive? 3) Is there physical evidence? 4) The case is reminiscent of the New York central park jogger case, a high profile case in which the police were put under pressure to find suspects, who quickly confessed and went to prison.

At least several dozen have been put to death since the 1970s who are now considered to have been innocent. Maybe he is guilty, maybe not.
