Convicted killer Ryan Ferguson, serving a 40-year prison sentence, has been released from prison, and Erin Moriarty of CBS' primetime 48 Hours magazine, took part of the credit. Moriarty had been publicizing the campaign by the family of the 29-year-old for his release, insisting that he was framed for the 2002 killing of Kent Heitholt, a Missouri journalist, by his then-teenage friend Charles Erickson. Erickson recanted in 2012 and the prosecution was discovered to have suppressed evidence.
Dan Abrams on ABC covered the release too, but he skipped on a couple of those five basic journalistic Ws. No Missouri mentioned for the Where? No Heitholt mentioned for the Who?
