A red truck, a wrongful conviction, and five new potential suspects.

On September 18, 1985 16-year-old Kim Simon went for a walk to meet up with a friend at Whitesboro Junior High near Utica, New York.

When she didn’t show up hours later she was reported missing. Her body was later found just miles from her home.

Three years after her murder, Steven Barnes was arrested and ultimately convicted. He served nearly two decades in prison before being exonerated by DNA evidence.
