• Others who testified that they saw Glaze near the Green crime scene were relatives or close friends of an Indian woman who had been raped and strangled six weeks before Bullman’s murder.

• The transient who testified that he had witnessed Bullman’s murder claimed to have witnessed more than 60 murders while in prison.

• The jail inmate who produced Glaze’s note later admitted he was looking for a “deal.”

False testimony, confessions

Innocence Project attorneys acknowledge that about 10 years ago, Glaze confessed to a slew of murders in California, though he was never prosecuted because his details didn’t match the crimes, the attorneys said they were told. It was also the only time he told authorities that he had committed the Minnesota murders. They believe the confessions were false.

Glaze was “branded a serial murderer 27 years ago in the press, and then 25 years ago by his conviction,” the filing says. “Justice can only be served by correcting this injustice as quickly as possible.”

They say the man they believe is the killer is free and still in Minnesota.
