Shoe test adds strange twist to Detroit wrongful conviction – WNEM Saginaw


There’s a strange twist in the saga of a Detroit man who was released from prison after more than eight years and compensated for a wrongful murder conviction.

State police say sophisticated tests show DNA from one of four victims on Davontae Sanford’s shoe.

The tests were recently performed as a result of Sanford’s lawsuit against Detroit police. State police are cautioning that the results are “preliminary.”
