    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.

    Missouri Supreme Court refuses to hear inmate's innocence claims (with clip)

    "ST. LOUIS, Mo. - A man serving a life sentence is denied an appeal hearing by Missouri’s Supreme Court, despite DNA tests proving the hair used at trial wasn’t his and the only eyewitness recanting her testimony.

    ...Rodney Lincoln appealed his 1982 murder conviction to Missouri’s Court of Appeals but was denied.

    The ruling stated innocence claims should only be allowed in death row cases....

    “There's no way a jury would’ve convicted Rodney if it had been fully informed,” said Sean O’Brien, UMKC Law Professor who helped work on Lincoln’s case.

    DNA testing later showed the hair presented at trial turned out to not be Lincoln’s, but he’s still in prison 35 years later...."
