In the early morning hours of Christmas in 1991, a beautiful and vibrant 23-year-old woman named Dana Ireland was kidnapped, raped and murdered in Hawaii.
MURDER IN PARADISE tracks the long investigation which followed, culminating with the 1994 confession of 21-year-old Frank Pauline. Despite recanting his confession on the stand, Frank was sentenced to life. Two other men were also sentenced for the crime, but forensic scientists could link no physical evidence to any of the accused. AMERICAN JUSTICE® interviews the two convicted killers who remain in prison and speaks with a forensic scientist who vehemently believes that they were wrongfully convicted. Could it be that Dana Ireland's killer is still at large?
