Prisoner Chris Tapp is petitioning district court to allow DNA testing of a number of pieces of evidence left at the crime scene, including several items never before tested.
In 1998, Tapp was found guilty of the murder of 18-year old Angie Dodge two years earlier. The only evidence against Tapp was his own confession. He maintains the confession was
false and coerced by Idaho Falls detectives, a contention recently supported by three national experts in interrogation techniques, crime scene analysis and false confessions.
