County, Oklahoma, of the murder of Debra Sue Carter. Her body had been found six years earlier. Fritz was sentenced to life in prison. Williamson was sent to death row. DNA testing revealed that neither Fritz nor Williamson was guilty. Further testing proved that none of the many hairs that were labeled "matches" belonged to them. The profile obtained from the DNA evidence matched Glenn Gore, one of the state's witnesses at trial. Gore escaped from work release shortly after testing was concluded and was later apprehended.

With the help of Barry Scheck, a Co-founder and Co-Director of The Innocence Project ( at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Dennis Fritz and Ron Williamson were exonerated and released in April 1999. Williamson had, at one point, come within five days of execution.
