    We enjoyed the documentary – I did see that Channel 43 carried something about the efforts to get the case re-opened.

    Just saw this film last night after stumbling upon a page about this case. I’m sure Serial is bringing renewed interest in this case, so your son will now have a massive stage, or audience to continue to tell the Witman story.
