After lengthy, intensive interrogations, which in some cases included threats to pursue the death penalty, four enlisted Navy sailors confessed to a rape and murder in Norfolk, Va. that occurred in 1997. Now, convincing new evidence has emerged indicating that all four may be innocent. A recent New York Times Magazine article describes how three of the men - Danial Williams, Joseph Dick, and Derek Tice - were sentenced to life without parole for the rape and murder of Michelle Moore-Bosko, and the fourth sailor, Eric Williams, spent 8-1/2 years in prison for the rape before his release. The four men, known as the "Norfolk Four," now maintain their innocence and say that police coerced their confessions during long interrogations that included threats of a death sentence and physical abuse. Their confessions contained accounts of the murder that varied significantly from one another, and the details they provided did not fit with evidence collected by police. In addition, no physical evidence gathered from the scene linked the men to the crime. A letter turned over to police in 1999 also cast doubt on the "Norfolk Four's" guilt. The letter was authored by Omar Ballard, a known criminal and an acquaintance of Moore-Bosko. In it he confessed to the crime, and police testing later confirmed that the only physical evidence found on the victim matched Ballard's DNA.
