USA: Forensic Hair Testimony; Evidence Flawed

From The Washington Post

"The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000....The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison".
