i thought the state for not doing their job. 20 years behind bars for a murder he did not commit. the procedure that can lead witness to making false i.d. and why so many bay area police departments are reluctant to change their policies. in new clue in the disappearance of sierra lamar. the piece of evidence police are looking for that is pretty hard to miss. mayor is lynch documents from china. bay area history and the defense wanted to destroy it. i said basically over our dead bodies of thousands of families can finally digging into their past. cody and the king. would start with big breaking news in pleasanton. we have learned that
a mother and daughter have both been shot. a sergeant with the police department tells us that the bodies were found around 6:00 on stacey court. we ask the detectives on seen if this is a murder-suicide. the police department would not say. they tell us that they hope to have more information in the next 15 minutes or so, this area though has been closed off will keep you posted on the you know any more information once it find out. we've also learned that many bay area police departments are using a certain procedure that critics say is sending innocent people to jail. it has to do with the way detectives' hill eyewitnesses. one man is living proof of how that system is flawed. does it cut with the story you only see on cbs five. why somebody falls to the crack what do not help? murray's caldwell spent 20 years behind bars for a murder a judge now says he didn't commit.

intentionally targeted because he filed a complaint about another incident. intentional or not influencing a witness happens more often than you might think. memory not only fed fades but isn't contaminated. they say all starts with the fall lineup. and he says and very often the face of the individual that the police believe is most likely the man who committed the crime. even without realizing it an investigator can send nonverbal cues to the eyewitness. the policeman who has been working the case may shift in his chair or my clean forward or take a deep breath. new speaker he says once the witness makes a false idea it snowballs. their confidence increases. because they had increased exposure to this one face. and once you get to the preliminary hearing by that time he is pointing at the person who is wearing a prison jumpsuit.
that is why the first step is still important. the way you avoid that is the individual conducting the assessment be different than the person and a policeman who is actually working the case. that is called a double blind lineup. shares apartment in santa clara county led the way in the bay area. adopting the protocols years ago. san francisco and pleasant hill police just started in the last year. but they're the minority. only 19 of 319 police and law enforcement agencies statewide have adopted the new preferred procedure. why so few? some of our plans with very small incidences' have small staffs. kurtis hell with the california state sheriff's association says it is too expensive. if you are working in a case that is active and ongoing in you're in a time crunch and you don't have the staff now he will rely on overtime issues. but points out convicted the
wrong person cost way more. is a very expensive in terms of judicial resources when you have to try to undo that wrongful conviction. and in the case is about to become even more expensive he is now taking the city's court for civil rights violations. when the let me out of the county jail didn't give me a bus ticket or a phone number to call for any help or anything? nobody's taking responsibility. san francisco police department will not comment because the lawsuit in this case and a footnote to all of this during the investigation of this case a man did come forward and admitted he was the murderer. it turns out he went on to kill another person and he is now serving time in prison in nevada. a burglary suspect has given police the slip. he escaped from the back of an officers patrol car. who they're looking for and where they might be. they're looking for a
