Exclusive: Justice Meets Corruption In Trailer For Documentary 'A Murder In The Park'

There have been numerous stories of innocent people sent to jail for crimes they didn’t commit, only to be freed later thanks to the tireless efforts of those who never gave up on them. But what happens when the tables are turned and a guilty person is set free instead? That’s where the fascinating story in the upcoming documentaryA Murder In The Park” gets rolling and today we have the exclusive trailer.

Directed by Christopher S. Rech and Brandon Kimber, the movie delves into the story of Anthony Porter, sentenced to death in 1983 for the murder of two teenagers. Fast-forward fifteen years later, journalism students look into the case and believe they’ve found the real killer. They then make a compelling argument and Porter is set free, while another man, Alstory Simon, “confesses” to the crimes. But nothing is as it seems in this case, which reveals some of the most broken elements of the justice system.

“A Murder In The Park” opens in theaters and on VOD on June 26th. Watch below.
