Darrell Jones is serving life in prison without the possibility of parole for a murder he maintains he did not commit. Jones claims Brockton police officers set him up, lied at his trial, and coerced witnesses.
His appeals have been denied. But now, lawyers with the Innocence Program say they can prove Brockton police deliberately altered a key piece of evidence in Jones' first trial, and they're asking for a new one.
We begin a week-long series: "Reasonable Doubts: Reopening The Case Of Darrell 'Diamond' Jones." Our stories were produced in collaboration with the New England Center for Investigative Reporting.
In Part 1, WBUR's Bruce Gellerman examines the crime scene. Listen to it above, or you can read the digital version of our joint investigation here.
Correction: An earlier version of this audio report included an incorrect inmate number for Darrell Jones. We regret the error.
