State Will Re-Try Camm

A press conference was held today by Floyd County Prosecutor Keith Henderson to announce that the State of Indiana will re-try David Camm for the September 28, 2000 murders of daughter Jill (5), son Brad (7), and wife Kimberly Camm.

Mr. Henderson said that he had spent many months considering all of the factors and evidence involved, and with the support of the Renn Family, he has decided that the State must re-try David Camm for the sake of justice.

“Unlike the first reversal that said that the evidence was less than overwhelming, the second reversal by the Supreme Court stated that there’s ample evidence outside of the  child molest evidence for the convictions,” said Mr. Henderson.

Warrick County Superior Court No. 2 still holds jurisdiction over the case. Mr. Henderson said that he expects that an Initial Hearing will be held in that court and that Judge Robert R. Aylsworth will keep jurisdiction. Mr. Henderson said that he anticipates a change of venue and other motions, but that each of them will be dealt with in due time.

Mr. Henderson began today’s press conference by dismissing claims of a book deal regarding the first two trials in this case. “There are a tremendous amount of inaccuracies being reported by the media. There is no book deal; there is no agreement to publish.”

There was an agreement at one point: “Once the case was out of my jurisdiction and in the hands of the Attorney General, and with the encouragement and support of the Renn Family, I agreed to publish the story of the Camm case. Once the case was reversed, the agreement to publish was terminated. However, I am more convinced now than ever that when this matter is completed, the unedited version of events needs to be told,” said Mr. Henderson.
