Dateline: "Mystery on Lockhard Road": David Camm case in Indiana

On Saturday, July 11, 2015, NBC Datelines re-aired “Mystery on Lockhart Road”.  The video preview is here

A former Indiana policeman, David Camm, was convicted of murdering his wife and family, sneaking out of a basketball game. He was said to have been reckless with other women.  The idea that he could have times his break from a pickup game of hoops was seen as absurd.

But a relative insisted on looking more at DNA evidence, and a Charles Boney showed up as a suspect.  A second trial convicted them both. But in a third trial, Camm was acquitted and Boney was convicted.  Boney insists that Camm set up a complicated plot involving Boney (explained near the end of the broadcast).  There was also an element of fetish.  

Camm discusses his final acquittal with a Louisville KY station here.
