CSI on Trial: The Investigation
In 2006 someone brutally murdered Wayne and Sharmon Stock, a respected farm couple, in their Murdock, Nebraska home. The Cass County Sheriff quickly suspected a nephew, Matt Livers. Livers confessed and claimed his cousin Nick Sampson helped him. Days later evidence from the crime scene, including a DNA match, led to the arrest of the real killers: a pair of out-of-state teenagers.
Reviewing video of the confession, experts discovered Livers confession was completely false. Learn more about that here.
