SEALED FATE the movie
In 1995, Dustin Turner and Billy Joe Brown were in the final weeks of 15 months of training to become U.S. Navy SEALs. Handsome and athletic, Turner and Brown were paired first as “swim buddies” (a SEAL term), later as roommates and best friends. They developed a legendary reputation among their peers for drinking and womanizing.
On the evening of June 18, 1995, Jennifer Evans was with her girlfriends at a popular Virginia Beach bar when she met Dustin Turner. She was seen holding hands with Turner at 1 a.m., and had arranged to meet her friends one hour later in the bar’s parking lot. When her friends returned at 2 a.m., both Evans and Turner were gone.

'The Writ of Actual Innocence obviously contains a burden which is impossible to overcome. When an innocent man can find no relief under this Writ, what is the point of it's existence? It was determined that Billy Brown's confession was credible in that he acted alone in murdering Jennifer Evans, and that I had NO ROLE in the murder or any restraint of the victim. These are the unalterable facts of my case. Yet, as an innocent man, after 16 years of confinement, still I languish in prison. This is a sad ruling not only for my family and friends, but to every citizen of Virginia and of this country who believe in justice. Whether or not I waste away the rest of my life in Virginia's prison system will be up to those who care about me and/or those who care about justice.' -- Dustin Turner
