Secrets of the Dead: Executed in Error

Secrets of the Dead: Executed in Error

Director: Andy Webb Cast: Liev Schreiber

DVD (Wide Screen)


Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen was convicted of murdering his wife, and his punishment was execution. Like other victims of capital punishment, DNA and forensic work later revealed that he was entirely innocent of the crime. What makes this case of particular interest is the fact that the Dr.'s execution occurred in 1910. This documentary presents this new evidence in the case, and makes the argument that turn-of-the-century justice may be full of unjustly convicted people like Crippen.
