The Keith Longtin Story
Interrogated for 36 hours without rest and without an attorney, Keith
Longtin was charged with murdering his wife. The charge was based
on a confession Prince George's County, Maryland police claimed he made,
but which Keith cannot remember. For the next eight months Keith
languished in jail, held without bond. Police ignored his attorney's
repeated requests for DNA testing. During that time, the man who
killed Keith's wife was free to commit six more brutal rapes. Even
when Keith was cleared by DNA testing -- ordered by a detective in the
sensitive crimes unit -- homicide detectives continued to insist Keith
had "guilty knowledge."

During interrogation, he says, hideous crime scene photos were shoved in
his face. (Dudley M. Brooks - The Washington Post)
