WRONGFUL CONVICTION

On June 9th, 1959, classmates Steven Truscott and Cheryl Harper rode Truscott’s bike together after school. That night she was reported missing and on June 11, 1959, Harpers body was discovered at a nearby farm woodlot. Truscott was convicted of raping and murdering Harper and sentenced to death but after a series of appeals, he was released on parole and later acquitted. No further individuals have been convicted of Harper’s murder and the case remains unsolved.
