Ep 43: Proving Innocence in Australia

 

This week we look at the cases of those proven innocent and those seeking to prove their innocence, including Kevin Henry. We examine the role race plays in the process and the way dodgy forensics, often influenced by race, can convict the innocent and control the media narrative.

Ep 42: The Forensic Race For Reed

This week on Curtain we bring you an update from Rodney Reed’s latest hearing in Texas. The similarities to Kevin Henry’s case cross the boundaries of race, innocence and dodgy forensics. Finally we reveal a case about to explode in Australia that will blow the lid on all of these issues and helps highlight why innocent men like Kevin and Rodney are still imprisoned.

Ep 37: Attention Turns to the Police

Hosts Amy McQuire and Martin Hodgson turn their attention to the police and their conflicting versions of the most basic events. Just how early on into the investigation had their attention turned to Kevin Henry and were clear indications of his innocence deliberately missed.
