NOTES:
Dallas policeman Robert Wood's routine inspection of a night driver became his last as the man behind the wheel shot him dead. 16-year old David Harris was arrested for the killing, but swore that a hitchhiker, Randall Adams, had committed the crime. Harris was released -Adams sentenced to death. Was Randall Adams a murdered -or an innocent scapegoat?

In the tradition of "The Executioner's Song" and "In Cold Blood", a chilling investigation and reconstruction of a brutal, cold-blooded murder. This real- life drama impartially sifts fact and fiction, blunty confronting the evidence. The results will take you to the boundaries of justice and beyond.
