With a signed dedication by the author on the front free endpaper. Ray Krone (born January 19, 1957) is an American who was wrongfully convicted of murder. He holds the distinction of being the 100th inmate exonerated from death row since the death sentence was reinstated in 1976. Krone was born and raised in Dover Township, York County, Pennsylvania, and graduated from Dover Area High School in 1974. He was labeled the "Snaggletooth Killer" (a feature which has since been corrected) and spent 10 years in prison, including two years on death row, after being found guilty of killing a Phoenix, Arizona, bartender in 1991. The woman was found dead in a bar where Krone often played darts. On April 8, 2002, Krone left prison after DNA evidence proved not only that he did not murder the victim, but identified the real killer, Kenneth Phillips, a repeatedly violent sexual offender. Copious crime scene evidence and interviews with other sources should have identified Phillips, but was ignored by the police and the prosecution's purported experts. In 2005, he received a settlement of $1.4 million from Maricopa County, and $3 million from the city of Phoenix. Since Krone's release, he has become an activist working for the abolition of the death penalty, and is Director of Membership and Training for Witness to Innocence. In February 2005, he was featured in episodes 13 and 14 of the third season of reality television show Extreme Makeover. His story is detailed in Jingle Jangle: The Perfect Crime Turned Inside Out; written by his cousin Jim Rix who was instrumental in getting Krone out of prison. (Wikipedia).

Inhaltsangabe: The author learns that his cousin is on Death Row and investigates the crime. He soon discovers that the only evidence against Ray Krone was a single bite mark misinterpreted by the prosecution's expert, a hired gun paid handsomely for his "opinion." Cousin Ray gets a second trial but is again convicted, and the author learns the hard way that the only way to free his cousin is to find the real killer. Ray goes free when crime scene DNA is matched to a convicted sex offender. But for the reader who likes to read between the lines, this true crime whodunit will leave you with the distinct impression that the real killer is still at large.
"A must for readers of true crime and anyone wondering why so many innocent people are convicted in America. The book satisfies from start to finish, from the opening of Ray Krone's horror story, through the compelling analysis of what went wrong and on to the
startling conclusion." - Sister Helen Prejean, author of "Dead Man Walking" and "The Death of Innocents"
"Jim Rix takes us on a remarkable journey inside an American tragedy. He helped win his cousin's freedom from Death Row and now he documents the chain of errors that put him there. The story will chill your belief in the American justice system. With gripping details that can only come from one who has lived the horror, Rix makes us realize that one wrongful conviction is a tragedy for us all." - Bill Kurtis, producer of the A&E programs "Investigative Reports" and "Cold Case Files"
