In 1991, Dunn was convicted of murder in St. Louis, Missouri, based largely on the testimonies of two teenagers who later recanted their statements. There was no physical evidence linking Dunn to the crime, and he consistently maintained his innocence. Despite these facts, he was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Over the years, multiple witnesses and even the original teenage accusers admitted that their testimonies were fabricated under police pressure.

Despite compelling evidence of his innocence and a judge even stating in 2020 that no jury would find him guilty today, legal hurdles have prevented his release, highlighting the systemic challenges faced by those wrongfully convicted.
