September 1, 2021

The crime happened back in 1990. Assistant Hofstra football coach Joe Healy was killed while sitting with his friends outside a fast-food restaurant. Police said it was a botched robbery. His death shattered the community and led to a lot of media attention. With pressure to find a killer, investigators eventually zeroed in on Christopher Ellis, who was 20 at the time, and two other men. Ellis has been locked in prison for the last 30 years but his murder conviction was just tossed out.
