When Bill Wegerle came home to find his wife murdered in their bed, his world fell apart. To make it worse, he became the prime suspect in her murder and, without an alibi, no one would believe his innocence. In a bid to clear his name, he agreed to a police polygraph test, but failed. Twice. By the time he was finally exonerated, in light of new evidence, it was too late – Bill and his children had spent twenty years living as social outcasts, damned by the very machine that should have saved them.
