Summary "About Dr. Jay Charles Smith's 1986 conviction and sentence of death for the murder of Susan Reinert. After six years on death row evidence was discovered that crime writer Joseph Wambaugh had secretly promised to pay $50,000 to a Pennsylvania State Patrol officer involved in the murder investigation if he would act as a consultant for Wambaugh's book about the murder case. A year after Smith's conviction Wambaugh published the bestselling book, Echoes in the Darkness, which was made into a television mini-series. Based on the new evidence that Smith's prosecution was based on a tainted investigation, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court reversed Smith's conviction in 1993 and barred his retrial. This Smith's first-person account of the case."
