So he comes up with a defense 30 years after the fact?

HotWingAgenda: So wait, you're telling me every guy in prison claims to be "innocent"? Now I've heard everything.

The programs that petition for appeals and retrials for those they feel were wrongfully convicted typically have extremely limited budgets and can't field anywhere near the amount of potential cases that are brought to them.  If they had selected this guy it's a good indication that he may have had a case.  It's a shame he died before they could find out.
