Summary "About the social and legal ramifications of a homicide in an aboriginal Tiwi community in Queensland, Australia. Kevin Condren was an aboriginal Australian wrongly convicted of the murder in 1984 based on his alleged confession to the crime. Condren claimed the confession was coerced and fabricated by the police. In 1990 the Queensland Court of Criminal Appeal and Australia's High Court both found serious problems casting doubt on the validity of Condren's alleged confession and his conviction based on three new witnesses who didn't testify at his trial. Queensland's Attorney-General reviewed the evidence and recommended that Condren be released. Kelvin Condren was released in 1990."
