In February 2010, Mechele Linehan’s murder conviction was overturned.

The judge declared that Leppink’s ‘letter from the grave’ framing Mechele and John Carlin should never have appeared as evidence.

He said it corrupted the jury and put guilt in their minds.

Mechele was free to go back to her normal life.
