Justice for Steven Truscott

Published in the Barrie Advance
7 September 2007
Steven Truscott is no longer a convicted murderer, but has justice been done given that he was acquitted and not exonerated?

Given the totality of the situation (loss of critical evidence, lack of DNA evidence, the passage of time, etc.), an acquittal is the best possible outcome, and one that Steven himself accepts as exoneration. Regardless of which of the 4 possible outcomes the Supreme Court could have picked, Steven is absolutely and unquestionably innocent in the court of public opinion. I’ve read a fair bit about the case and find it unfathomable that Truscott was convicted in the first place, let alone that someone might think that he possibly could he done it.

Congratulations Steven for finally receiving justice. It’s deplorable that it took so long.

However, let’s not forget that the Harper family is still waiting for justice. It’s also a shame that we may never know who killed Lynn Harper. I hope the O.P.P. will re-open the case. It might not be too late.
