Despite the Supreme Court’s summer hiatus, the Troy Davis case continues to make news. Tuesday night on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, reporter Gary Tuchman covered the case. His report includes interviews with some of the witnesses who have recanted their trial testimony, and well as one of the jurors who now says she would find Troy Davis not guilty. Tuchman also interviews Officer Mark MacPhail’s widow, but was unsuccessful in scoring an interview with the alternative suspect, Sylvester “Red” Coles.
The US Supreme Court reconvenes on September 29, and may make a decision on his case at that time, but meanwhile the new District Attorney in Chatham County, Georgia, can still reopen the investigation into the case.
