This article reports that Donald Wedler, a fugitive who confessed to the Marilyn Sheppard murder, passed a lie test in which he said that he "clubbed a Greater Cleveland woman three years ago during a burglary." Alex Gregory, the polygraph expert employed by the Court of Last Resort, a magazine promotion, said, however that he wanted Wedler to take another polygraph test before making a final examination. The author of the Perry Mason mystery series, Erle Stanley Gardner, devoted thousands of hours to a project called "The Court of Last Resort". This project, which he undertook with experts in the the forensic, legal and investigative communities, reviewed charges against possibly innocent criminal defendants.
