Recently, East Coast Private Investigations of New Jersey received a phone call from a client wishing to retain our services. The client was a family member of a person being incarcerated for murder who was awaiting trial. After a careful analysis of the case we felt there were numerous leads that had not been followed up on and decided to take on the investigation.
For example, there was video feed which the police never viewed to determine if any evidence could be located. There were witnesses who had not been interviewed. The area the crime took place in was never properly canvassed. It seemed the police had based their case on one eye witness identification. After conducting our own investigation and presenting our findings to the client’s attorney, the man who had been falsely accused was released from jail. In this instance, the police’s refusal to conduct a full and proper investigation that took into account all the facts of the crime almost led to an individual serving a lengthy sentence in prison. There are few injustices that are more tragic than an innocent individual being imprisoned for a crime they did not commit due to a police department’s inability to properly conduct an investigation.
It is an unfortunate reality that at times those prosecuted for crimes by the criminal justice system are innocent, and an even sadder reality that at times the justice system gets it wrong and incarcerates innocent individuals. There are a variety of reasons for the incarceration of the innocent, from pressures to close cases to poorly conducted investigations. Even in the most high profile of cases, sometimes the system gets it wrong and sends an innocent man or woman to prison. Since 1973, 156 prisoners on death row throughout the United States have been exonerated and set free. It was only with the hard work of well trained professionals that these injustices were recognized, investigated, and overturned.
