Eddie Garza, Corpus Christi Police Detective.
While the prosecutor in DeLuna's case said that Carlos Hernandez—the man DeLuna said was the actual killer—was a "phantom," evidence uncovered years later shows not only that he existed, but that he was well-known to police and prosecutors at the time and had a long history of violent crimes.
This interview was conducted as part of a research project lead by Columbia Law School professor James Liebman. This video is a supplementary resource to The Wrong Carlos, a book which uncovers the story of Carlos DeLuna, a poor Hispanic man with childlike intelligence who was executed in Texas in 1989. The book and associated evidence prove that Carlos DeLuna was innocent. Visit the website, comb through the evidence, and decide for yourself: thewrongcarlos.net.
