When a beloved five-year-old falls victim to a brutal homicide, authorities quickly close in on a suspect no one could have predicted – a 12-year-old neighbor. But members of the community have their doubts, which are only heightened when prosecutorial misconduct is uncovered, leaving everyone to ask: did investigators go after the right person? Or did tunnel vision lead them to victimize yet another child?
