Wrong Man? A Mothers Cry, The

On June 9, 1991, the body of a young girl was found lying on the side of a road in Georgia. A year and a half later, her mother, Teresa Fargason, was charged with her murder. In this, the fifth installment of “The Wrong Man?” series, Jerry Palace explores the world of Macon, Georgia and the case against Teresa Fargason. While circumstantial physical evidence and an alleged confession ultimately led to her conviction, many questions remain. If the alleged confession took place on a wiretap that the FBI ruled “inaudible”, why was it allowed to be played in court? And why was evidence that pointed to another suspect ignored? Fargason is now serving a life sentence for the murder of her daughter – a murder many believe she did not commit.
