Michelle Young, a beautiful mother and wife, was brutally beaten to death and the police immediately suspected her husband, Jason Young. Unfortunately for the police and prosecutors, there was no evidence of Jason's involvement, but they pursued him regardless. The circumstantial evidence in this case barely rises to the level of coincidental. I am not sure what is more appalling, that the prosecutors moved forward with this case with so little "evidence" or that 12 jurors were able to convict Jason Young. Lynne does an excellent job of presenting and analyzing the facts of the case. If you are going to charge people based on suspicion and coincidence in this case, there is another much more compelling individual to pursue.
Mrs. Blanchard painstakingly describes all of the evidence, much of it missed by detectives, who, apparently, had already decided Jason Young was guilty and looked no further.
She points out the inconsistencies in the testimony and the conclusions detectives came to without any proof and who failed to identify other suspects. Witnesses were either coerced to change the time line of their observations or, else, were not called at trial. Blanchard offers other possibilities and reveals testaments that changed from one conversation to another.
The judicial system denied the defendant his right to a fair trial by allowing the prosecution to enter into evidence testimony that NC Statutes did not allow.
the handbook to all the details on how someone can be so unfairly accused. There is a mountain of reasonable doubt and I
hope that the NC judicial system will overturn Mr. Young's conviction and set him free. Excellent reading due to the hard work and diligence of the writer.
Most disheartening of all is Mr Young's Miranda rights being used against him.
It's hard for me to believe after reading this book that a jury can look at this evidence and say that there is no reasonable doubt in this case? The window of opportunity for the accused to commit this horrendous murder was so unbelievably short, and yet other potential suspects were not investigated properly; even with the testimony of witnesses that noticed an out-of-the-ordinary vehicle in the driveway of the house the morning after the murder.
Again I'm left with the feeling that the accused in this country are not assumed innocent until proven guilty... that the judicial system has gotten to a point where the investigators and prosecutors can twist evidence into anything they want, without regards to the truth.
