SNOW FILES

The Snow Files Podcast Premieres March 2, 2020 

A True Crime story told by the defendant from Stateville Prison in Joliet, Illinois. An eye opening presentation of the 1991 cold case murder of Bill Little, “solved” upon the arrest of two people nearly 10 years later – one was acquitted, the other is serving life without parole. Jamie Snow is being represented by the Exoneration Project out of the University of Chicago. The podcast will reveal vital new information obtained from years of FOIA requests, over 70 audio recordings and police documents that have never been heard or seen before. An in-depth look at an incredible conviction based solely on faulty eye witness ID and jailhouse informants – no physical evidence links Jamie to the crime.

March 2, 2020 EP 1: The Crime Scene: 18 year old Bill Little was murdered Easter Sunday while working as a gas attendant at the Clark Oil station in Bloomington, Illinois. Nearly 10 years later, Jamie Snow was convicted of the murder and sentenced to life without parole in Stateville Prison. Jamie Snow has always maintained his innocence. In the premiere episode of Snow Files, Jamie Snow explains the crime scene in depth. You’ll learn “who was where” on the night of the crime from the key perspectives of the star witness, Danny Martinez, and the two first officers on the scene, Jeff Pelo and Paul Williams. We’re playing some pretty old tapes, so slap your headphones on for the best listening experience, and dive into crime night.  50 min  SNOW NOTES:  Crime Scene Diagram     Officer Pelo’s Perspective     Officer William’s Perspective     Danny Martinez’s Perspective

March 9, 2020 Ep 2: The 11th Hour Witness: A Star Witness is Born: Hours after the crime, police began interviewing potential witnesses in an effort to find out who killed Bill Little. The detectives engaged in a desperate hunt for 9 years. As time went on, stories changed several times and a star witness was born, at the 11th hour. Five months before Jamie Snow’s trial, the man living next door to the gas station suddenly recalled seeing Jamie flee the scene of the crime, even though he previously chose other suspects from the line up, and even confided in a friend that it definitely wasn’t him. After a private meeting with the States Attorney, Danny Martinez pointed the finger directly at Jamie Snow. This second episode of Snow Files compares all five versions of his story against investigator and police testimony, and explains just how faulty eyewitness testimony can lead to a wrongful conviction. 1 hr  4 min  SNOW NOTES: Danny Martinez 10 Year Recollection of Events 

March 16, 2020 Ep 3: Key Witness Wrap Up: The night of the crime, two witnesses spoke to police officers after realizing the gas station clerk was shot dead. Both witnesses had seen someone suspicious, but not dangerous. A boy, looking out his bedroom window, saw someone leave the gas station and turn the corner into the night. He then heard police sirens and saw an ambulance. Minutes earlier, a customer at the gas pump looked on as someone harassed the clerk inside. When he went to pay, the man shielded his face and waited at the end of the counter. The clerk was shaking, and could not talk or properly take his payment. After ten years, these witnesses took the stand. One said it was Jamie who fled into the night. The other refused, and maintained he could never identify Jamie as the man he saw harassing the clerk. This third episode of Snow Files wraps up the key witnesses from the crime scene, and exposes the elaborate reconstruction of witness testimony told to the jury, through the State’s Attorney.  1hr 17 min  SNOW NOTES: Gerardo Gutierrez’s Perspective     Carlos Luna’s Perspective 

March 23, 2020 Ep 4: Nobody Bats a Thousand: Jamie’s trial lasted nine days and the jury deliberated for two days. They heard forty-three states witnesses and fifteen defense witnesses. They heard Jamie’s attorneys hassle witnesses. But what they didn’t hear was even more important. They didn’t hear critical questions or objections to key witness testimony, recorded police radio calls or interviews, or any evidence or investigation that directly discredited witnesses. They also didn’t hear Jamie’s constant letters to the judge, begging McClean county for relief from his broken-down legal team. Jamie’s pair of lawyers were a stroke patient and a mentally ill alcoholic, who berated him throughout the trial, and tried to abandon him right before sentencing. This fourth episode of Snow Files shows no mercy to Jamie, by even his own court appointed attorneys.  1hr  SNOW NOTES: Defense Attorney Frank Picl’s Perspective
