For this newly updated show, McGuffin spoke candidly about his work with the Forensic Justice Project that helped him gain his freedom; the key role unidentified DNA found on evidence played in overturning his conviction; and his life since being free, including his desire to seek justice for Freeman and solve the mystery behind who really killed her. “20/20” unravels the details of Freeman’s disappearance and explores how the case went cold for ten years before authorities arrested McGuffin.
