The following are links lead to my reporting on Mark Turner’s
case in Pensacola, Florida. I began following his case during reporting on the murders of Byrd and Melanie Billings in Beulah, Florida in July 2009.
Turner believes the man now charged with the murders of the Billings also tried to “hit” him in his own home in Gulf Breeze, Florida, and that that “hit” is connected to his civil lawsuit filed against a prominent Pensacolan.
Fourteen months later, with his Appeal denied, Mark Turner is in prison serving a sentence that surely is unjust. This must be what happens when a prosecutor is allowed to pile-on unrelated, trumped-up and false charges, on behalf of a prominent philanthropic citizen.
Mark and his family are working on his post conviction appeal at this moment. Mark Turner’s story is important…because it could be you…it could be me.
