Despite the direct Trial testimony of the lead detective that there were no identifiable fingerprints found at the crime scene, (Transcript page 211) it was later discovered through documents obtained from the Prosecutor's files that there were, in fact, two fingerprints "with sufficient ridge detail for comparison" found on Johnson's glasses, which were found thrown down next to her body by the killer. The Ohio Crime Lab ("BCI") issued a report of the fingerprints being compared with Johnson's, Dan Miller's and two other suspects never mentioned at Trial, with no match. They were never compared with Matt's.
Matt spent the next 15 years, from 1997 - 2012 trying to get his fingerprints compared with them, being rejected by the Trial and appellate Courts. In 2010 (unbeknownst to Matt,) the BCI sent everything back to Ashland County, which destroyed the glasses and the prints.
The Prosecutor knowingly withheld voluminous amounts of exculpatory evidence that proves beyond any doubt that he knew he was prosecuting an innocent man. More evidence exonerated Matt than tended to inculpate him; and the inculpatory evidence was all fabricated. While the real evidence was withheld.
