In 2000, Lt. Michale Callahan of the Illinois State Police was asked to review an old case. It involved the 1986 murder of a newlywed couple, Dyke and Karen Rhoads. Eyewitness testimony helped convict two men: Randy Steidl and Herb Whitlock.
Callahan’s efforts helped to discredit that testimony. Steidl and Whitlock were both released from prison, both after serving over a decade for the crime. Lt. Michale Callahan spoke to Eight Forty-Eight about the experience. His book about the investigation of the Rhoads' case is Too Politically Sensitive.
