Aubrey Durkinabout this book: What if something unexpected came along to shake up your entire life? What if this event came through no fault of your own? This is the case with a young man named Brenton Butler.
On a quiet Sunday morning the still air was shattered by the sound of gun fire. The killer of a white female tourist fled and made away from the scene. The horrified husband described the killer to police as a young black male. Bending to pressure to catch a suspect quickly, police detained then arrested Butler based on the vague description.
Butler was taken in to be processed and interrogated. Using unduly coercive interrogation techniques the interrogators pulled a false confession out of Butler. The confession stood alone as there was no evidence whatsoever on Butler that he was the killer. No blood or gunpowder residue was found on him.
Fortunately he was proven innocent and the real killer was caught. Nonetheless, this short book explores some of the factors that almost cost an innocent young man his freedom.
