With the case all but settled, let's take a look at where the Beatrice 6 is at and where it's been through the eyes of two journalists.

A decade ago, the Journal Star produced Presumed Guilty, an eight-day series telling the story of the 1985 murder of Helen Wilson in Beatrice — and the troubled investigation that led to the wrongful conviction of six men and women.

Over five days, from Sunday through Thursday, the Journal Star revisits this important story in a new way. At journalstar.com/presumed-guilty, you’ll find a serialized podcast based on the eight-part, 2009 series, along with the original series as it appeared in print and an interactive timeline.

Sunday: A murder, and then the trail goes cold.

Monday: A persistent detective turns up the heat on a cold case.

Tuesday: From prosecution to prison.

Wednesday: A case crumbles and the Beatrice 6 go free.

Today: Where the case is and where it's been, through the eyes of two journalists.
