Michelle Murphy awoke on the night of September 12th 1994 to find her life forever altered. Her son Travis, just 15 weeks old, had been brutally stabbed to death, his body left on the kitchen floor. After more than 7 hours of police interrogation 17-year-old Michelle admitted to accidentally killing Travis, in a confession which is now widely regarded as being coerced (and of which only 26 minutes was recorded). Her other child, a 2-year-old girl, was promptly placed with another family who later adopted her.
Michelle was found guilty and sentenced to life without parole, though the evidence submitted at trial was highly problematic. The conviction was largely based upon the testimony of Michelle’s 14-year-old neighbour, William Lee, and on faulty analysis that indicated Michelle’s blood was found at the scene of the crime. In fact, at the time of the trial, the prosecution had received a report stating that Michelle’s blood type was categorically different to the blood found at the scene - information which they decided to keep to themselves. A troubled teen with a violent past, it is thought that Lee held a grudge against Michelle for turning down his advances, and his claim to have seen her with blood on her arms was completely unsubstantiated. Lee never made it to trial after accidentally hanging himself while masturbating.
In 2014 further DNA testing was ordered and the District Attorney (who happened to have been the prosecutor at Michelle’s original trial) requested that Michelle’s sentence be vacated, stating that he realised his arguments in the case had not been based on science. After spending 2 decades behind bars, Michelle was finally declared innocent. Travis’ killer has never been found.
Norville Rogers, known colloquially as “Shaggy”, is a 17 year old Junior at Coolsville High, class of ’75. He stands at 6 foot 2 with a wild head of hair that refuses to be tamed and forest of facial hair that must be shaved twice daily. Shaggy has a tendency towards anxiety, and with permission from his father he often smokes pot to calm his nerves. When marijuana is unavailable he heads straight to the nearest diner to stuff his face with as much food as he can. This is just perfect for his dog and best friend Scooby, as there are plenty of leftovers for the Great Dane to scarf down once his owner is home.
