An inquiry opened in Toronto into the wrongful conviction of Guy Paul Morin. One of the first witnesses was a former cellmate of Morin's. Robert May returned to his original claim that Morin had confessed to murdering nine-year-old Christine Jessop. May had recanted that testimony in 1993, but told the inquiry that that retraction was a lie. Morin described May's testimony as pathetic. (DNA evidence cleared Morin in 1995. Christine Jessop's 1984 murder in Queensville, north of Toronto, is still unsolved.)
