Catch-22, Texas-style

How can you use DNA to prove your innocence when there is no DNA because there was no crime? That’s the dilemma Fran and Dan Keller, whose 1990s convictions in an absurd satanic ritual abuse case in Texas were overturned a few years ago. Despite that, the prosecutor in the case refuses to clear the couple without DNA evidence.

“That, of course, is absurd and impossible — and distressing to the Kellers and their supporters,” Jordan Smith reports here. “There is no physical evidence, like DNA, linking the alleged crime to anyone else, because, simply, there was no crime.”
