The 1999 release of Anthony Porter, once 48 hours from his scheduled execution, was a story that stunned the nation. Porter had already filled out the menu for his last meal and was measured for his coffin, when a determined group of journalism students took advantage of a temporary stay in the case to re-investigate it themselves. A few short months later the students and their professor, together with a private investigator, built a case against a new suspect, eventually gaining Porter's release.
