"It's a Good Thing"

Clip: Season 2011 Episode 11 | 1m 19s

Shirley Ree Smith reacts to new doubts from the coroner's office on her conviction. "I wouldn't even be in this predicament if he was here 15 years ago, 16 years ago," she says. "I wouldn't be going through this." For a pathologist to question [the cause of death], to say it's undetermined -- that's something people should think about."
