New Evidence May Bring Re-trial

A witness, Joseph H. Baumgartner Sr., has come forward stating on the night of the murder, convicted serial killer Andrew Dillon tried to use him as an alibi. Dillon stopped into the coffee shop where Baumgartner was and tried to convince him to say they'd been together all evening.
