In 2006 Scott Dyleski was convicted in the murder of Pam Vitale, wife of high-profile California lawyer Daniel Horowitz. Dyleski was 16 at the time that he committed the brutal murder of Ms. Vitale. Dyleski was sentenced to life without parole.
Now Dyleski’s legal team is petitioning to have his conviction overturned stating not only that Dyleski received ineffective counsel but they basically accuse Daniel Horowitz of being the ‘real killer’. They claim that his alibi at the time of Ms. Vitale’s murder was not properly verified. They say they have evidence that will clear Dyleski.
I guess they forgot that whole DNA evidence thing not to mention that Dyleski basically signed his work by carving a symbol into Ms. Vitale’s back that he also used to signed his ‘artwork’. Let us also not forget that there was reason to believe that Dyleski’s mother may have tried to destroy evidence as well.
It seems that the hippy commune that Dyleski was raised in finally found an attorney that bought into its conspiracy theories of Dyleski being framed.
