Capozzi : Wrongly Convicted
In one of the great miscarriages of justice a Buffalo man was wrongly convicted in 1995 of two rapes and served more than twenty years in prison before he was exonerated. Capozzi, who suffered from schizophrenia, always had the support of his family, who never gave up on the hope that his name might someday be cleared. In this special investigative report, Capozzi's story is told, along with the capture of the true rapist and killer, Altemio Sanchez. A Buffalo cold case detective, Dennis Delano, played a key role in Capozzi's release and exoneration. Reported by WIVB-TV Senior Correspondent Rich Newberg and Investigative Reporter Luke Moretti.
