'Fairbanks Four' Seek Truth, Freedom As Evidentiary Hearing Begins


As four weeks of evidentiary hearings began October 5 in a Fairbanks courtroom, April Monroe and other supporters of the Fairbanks Four prayed for justice – not just for the four men they say were imprisoned for a murder they didn’t commit, but also for John Hartman, the teenager who died after an act of random violence on a street corner one cold Fairbanks night 18 years ago.

“He was a victim of a hate crime,” Monroe said of Hartman. The person or persons responsible for Hartman’s death have not had to answer for the crime, and because of that “he was denied justice.”
