Daily Dose of RX: Man Released from Jail After Officials Believe his Doppelgänger Committed the Crime

We can’t even be mad at the witnesses.

A man has been released from prison after serving 17 years for a crime officials no longer believe he committed. The story is truly crazy.

While in jail, he began hearing about another inmate who not only looked EXACTLY like him, but had the same first name as him too. After his lawyers went digging and witnesses realized they couldn’t tell the two apart, a judge ordered him released. The man even lived in the area where the original crime happened while the man imprisoned lived across the state line! WHAT!

This case shows the inherent problems with witness IDs. But with that said, wow. This is really just a crazy story.
