BLOOMINGTON — A dozen years into a 100-year sentence for killing his daughter, Bart McNeil had lost contact with the world and given up any hope that his conviction would be reversed, despite his repeated claims that police ignored evidence pointing to another suspect — his former girlfriend, Misook Nowlin, who was later convicted of murdering her mother-in-law.(Read article for complete information)

Comment by Jeanne Ross:  In all likelihood McNeil’s estranged girlfriend, Misook Nowlin/Misook Wang is an outright serial killer. Photos accompanying the article, however, are misleading.  Barton McNeil is seen hunched over and in handcuffs.  Under protest, Barton had to wear a waist chain to which his hands were cuffed, severely limiting his movement,

Typically restraints are used only on inmates housed in the disciplinary segregation unit.  Instead, Barton resides in a low-aggression cell house in the prison’s general population.  Barton has had no disciplinary “tickets” in over eight years, nor has he ever had a violence-related “ticket” in his near two decades behind bars.  Moreover, Barton’s official IDOC aggression-level classification has always been at the lowest it can possibly be given the length of his sentence.

Wholly unwarranted for other reasons, the restraints worn by Bart were due solely to an on-going prison-wide lockdown during the course of the filmed interview, at a time when ALL inmates would’ve been restrained as such.

The above article’s optics is in stark conflict with Bart’s character, his prison record, and his genuine innocence.  As one closely associated to Bart and his exoneration efforts, I can assure the reader of these facts.
