Ken Wyniemko served more than eight years in Michigan prisons for a rape he didn’t commit, and the actual perpetrator of the crime has never been brought to justice. In an effort to rekindle interest in the case, Wyniemko is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who provides information leading to the conviction of the rapist. The DNA results that proved Wyniemko’s innocence could potentially locate the actual perpetrator, Wyniemko told The Macomb (Michigan) Daily.
From The Macomb Daily, 4/5/07:
“I want to shake the bushes. I want to know the truth,” Wyniemko said Wednesday from his Rochester Hills home. “I need to know the truth for my own peace of mind and to close a chapter, and for the public because he (culprit) is still out there walking the streets.”
He criticized Clinton Township police for failing to actively pursue the case. “The police have the DNA profile but they’re not doing anything about it,” he said.
