On July 28, 1998, an 11-year-old girl, Ryan Harris, was found raped and murdered in a vacant lot in the Englewood, Chicago. The homicide caught the nation's attention when a 7-year-old boy and 8-year-old boy were charged with the murder 12 days after Ryan's body was found. This made them the youngest murder suspects in the nation at the time. Semen found at the scene and subsequent DNA tests totally cleared the boys of the crime and pointed to convicted sex offender Floyd Durr. The boys each filed lawsuits against the city, which were eventually settled for millions of dollars. Durr pleaded guilty to the rape of Harris, but never admitted to her murder. [3]
