In 1980, a woman was murdered in her apartment. Steven Linscott was her neighbor and convicted of the murderer and sentenced to forty years in prison. He saw a dream about the incident and the detail in his dream was very similar to what really had happened. In the trial, the evidence was his hair which was “consistent” and “similar” to hairs from the crime scene. However, there isn’t enough empirical data on the various class characteristics in human hair. First he was convicted of the murderer but overturned it because the evidence was invalid. As a result, he had served three years in prison.
