Forensic Casebook

Victim: Vikki Thompson
Suspect(s): Mark Weston

Mark Weston was tried and acquitted for Vikki Thompson’s murder in 1995 due to lack of evidence. 

Re-examination of his clothing several years later revealed blood on one of his boots which contained DNA matching Vikki’s. In only the second re-trial since the double jeopardy rule was scrapped, Weston then went on to be convicted.
