Michael Salerno: Wrongfully Convicted of Murder
Dennis Michael “Sal” Salerno has been corresponding with The IO for several years. He has always been polite, patient and honest with us. He often sends articles he has clipped from other publications because they might be of interest to our readers though his “budget” for stamps is extremely tight. By his own admission, Salerno has not exactly been an angel (how many of us are?) before being convicted and sentenced to life for murdering his wife. But the evidence shows and we believe, Salerno did not murder his wife. His has no family. His friends have long since drifted away. He needs help. There is forensic evidence and new evidence that could reverse his wrongful conviction. Below is our reprint of a trifold flyer Salerno is sending out to anyone who cares. The IO will post Salerno’s story to the “Behind the Razorwire” section our website. If you have it in your heart to write to this very decent man, do so. If you can help in other ways, contact Salerno and/or the IO.
Michael Salerno is actively challenging a wrongful; Michigan first degree murder conviction, is imprisoned in Ohio for the self-defense killing of the man responsible, and seeks comments on and help with this case.
Mr. Salerno understands the history and prejudicial nature of the Presumption of Correctness-the honest reality, though, is he did not kill his wife. No evidence connects him to her murder. He will continue to battle against the State's injustice. Any advice, assessment or assistance offered would be appreciated, as well as a suggestion of someone to contact, or a reference of this correspondence.
