Recently, Clinton’s lawyers requested the gloves that were found on the second murder scene to be tested again in order to see if there was gunshot residue on them. This could indicate that they were worn by the shooter.
The results came in a few weeks ago. It turns out that the gloves are, in fact, saturated with gunshot residue, including between the fingers where gunshot residue would land if the gloves were worn during the shooting of a gun. David Page admitted to wearing a pair of gloves that were found at the scene. Earlier, his DNA – and not Clinton’s – was found inside the gloves. Clinton Young’s attorneys have moved the Texas trial court to withdraw the execution warrant based on these results combined with David Page’s other admissions: they insist that this new evidence demonstrates that David Page shot Mr. Petrey.
Based on this new evidence, the judge agreed to a hearing in Clinton’s case. This hearing will be held on October 16, just 10 days before the scheduled execution.
