Forensic Science Commission Determines Science Used to Convict ITX Client was "Egregiously Wrong"

Tuesday, July 24 2018

Earlier, we told you about the case of ITX client Joe Bryan, a man we believe was wrongly convicted of his wife's murder. An extensive two-piece exposé by Pamela Colloff details every aspect of Joe's case.

The Texas Forensic Science Commission has now formally determined the bloodstain analysis used to convict Joe was "not accurate" and in fact "egregiously wrong." Said one expert, "If any juror relied on any part of [the bloodstain pattern testimony] to render a verdict, Mr. Bryan deserves a new trial."
