schema:description"In the spring of 1962, on an isolated stretch of Arizona desert, an abandoned car and two bodies were discovered. This brutal murder of a young couple bewildered the sheriff's department of Maricopa County for years; despite a few promising leads the case went cold. More than a decade later, a clerk in the sheriff's department came forward to tell police that her estranged husband had confessed to the murders. The case, rife with extraordinary irregularities, attracted the sustained involvement of the Arizona Justice Project. Macumber's story illuminates startling, upsetting truths about our justice system, which kept a possibly innocent man locked up for almost forty years, and what constitutes justice in our country today."@en
