Cleared by DNA, he's killed by traffic

Dan Young Jr., leaves prison alongside his sister, Betty Ray, after being released in January 2005.



 





 

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- A man who spent 12 years in prison for murder before new DNA testing exonerated him last year was killed in a hit-and-run as he walked on the city's South Side.

The vehicle sped away after hitting Dan Young Jr., 45, Wednesday night, police said. He was pronounced dead Thursday, the Cook County medical examiner's office said.

Young had been released from prison in January 2005 after new testing on DNA evidence failed to link him and another man to the 1990 murder and sexual assault of Kathy Morgan, 39, whose body had been found in a South Side building after a fire.

"He always wanted to talk about his new life and what he would do once he got his clemency money," his attorney, Kathleen Zellner, said after learning of Young's death. "He wanted to know if I would help him get a red brick house."

"He certainly didn't deserve any of this," she said.

Young had a lawsuit pending against the city and Cook County officials alleging false imprisonment and malicious prosecution. Officials have denied the allegations.

Chicago police said the hit-and-run was under investigation. No arrests had been made in the case Friday morning, police spokeswoman Laura Kubiak said.

Indian Man Claims He Found Condom in Cola

 

A consumer court Wednesday ordered soft drink maker PepsiCo to pay financial damages after a customer found a condom inside a bottle, a news report said.

 

Calling the case "rare" and one that had a serious bearing on public health, the court ordered the company to pay 100,000 rupees ($2,200) to a legal aid fund for consumers, and 20,000 rupees ($450) to the complainant, Press Trust of India reported.

 

"This case is an eye-opener for others who are engaged in manufacturing soft drinks and are required to maintain the prescribed standards of purity in (the) public interest," the news agency quoted the three-judge panel as saying.

 

Calls to PepsiCo spokesman Annie Kishen's phone went unanswered Wednesday.

 

Complainant Sudesh Sharma, a resident of Ujhani village near New Delhi, said he fell sick after consuming one of the two Pepsi bottles he bought in 2003.

 

Sharma said he found dirt and contaminants in the bottle, and suffered from insomnia, severe headache and stomach pain. He found the condom in the other unopened bottle, PTI reported.

 

Pepsi denied negligence at the proceedings, saying the bottle was a fake.
