St. Louis judge rejects convicted killer's innocence claim
“Life is not what’s on ‘CSI’,” Assistant Circuit Attorney Ed Postawko said in September. “Nothing about this demonstrates Rodney Lincoln’s innocence. It just shows they weren’t able to get the perpetrator’s DNA.”
He pointed out one hair from the crime scene was found to belong to an animal, showing that the two hairs in question could have been left by someone other than the attacker.
Prosecutors also have argued that the two girls’ eyewitness identification sealed Lincoln’s conviction, not physical evidence. Lincoln’s attorneys have contended those identifications were fed subconsciously by detectives eager to find the killer.
