An unprecedented order of the Canadian Supreme Court freed David Milgaard on April 16, 1992 after 23 years of false imprisonment. Centurions’ two-year investigation of a 1969 Saskatoon, Canada, rape/murder established the identity of the real killer. The Supreme Court recognized that “the continued conviction of Milgaard amounts to a miscarriage of justice.” Then, a 1997 DNA testing of physical evidence confirmed Milgaard’s innocence and resulted in the arrest of the actual killer, albeit 28 years after the crime.
David lives a quiet life with his family in Canada.
