Huntsville, Texas 2000
Gary Graham was convicted on the testimony of a single eyewitness who, after a robbery and murder, saw
someone "for a split second" at 9:30pm in a dimly-lit Safeway parking lot from a distance of "thirty
three to forty four feet". At least five other people witnessed the crime, and were much closer to
the suspect. None of these witnesses could identify Graham. Four people have sworn affidavits that
Mr. Graham was with them continuously at the time of the crime and have passed polygraph tests.
Many feel this evidence against Graham was insufficient to convict anyone of murder. He was 17 years
old at the time of his conviction.
Graham was executed June 22, 2000.
