Kevin Keith was convicted for the 1994 shootings in Bucyrus, Ohio that killed three people and wounded three others.
Several alibi witnesses placed him more than 30 minutes away at the time of the shootings.
Keith was convicted due to testimony from G. Michele Yezzo, a now-discredited forensic analyst, who claimed that tires previously on Mr. Keith’s girlfriend’s car left the tire tracks in the snow at the scene.
Retired FBI Special Agent William Bodziak has concluded that Yezzo’s forensic conclusions were wrong, it could not have been Keith’s girlfriend’s car that made the snow impressions, and snow imprints did not exclude the alternate suspect whom the police simply failed to investigate.
