Crime Scene KC
Dale Helmig, a Missouri man convicted of murdering his mother, was released from prison last night after 14 years behind bars. Tony Rizzo was there in Maysville, and you can read his account here. A judge has ruled that Helmig was the victim of a “fundamental miscarriage of justice,” but he’s not completely clear yet. The attorney general is appealing his release.
