NACVSA Points out Perils of Polygraph: Killer Passes Polygraph, Innocent Man Fails, Killer Goes On To Kill Again
Date:5/5/2010

Unreliable lie detector readings result in innocent man spending 22 years in prison for murder; guilty man kills again.

Rochester, NY (PRWEB) May 5, 2010 -- National Association of Computer Voice Stress Analysts says it’s past time to reevaluate the polygraph’s role in criminal investigations. A recent WHEC.com story concerns what can only be described as one of the worst failures of the polygraph, a killer passed and an innocent man failed the polygraph during the murder investigation of 74-year-old Viola Manville in 1988. After failing the polygraph administered by the New York State Police, detectives were able to get the innocent man, Frank Sterling, to confess to the murder. Sterling was then convicted of Manville’s murder and sent to prison while her actual killer, Mark Christie, who passed the polygraph, also conducted by the New York State Police, went on to abduct and murder four-year-old Kali Ann Poulton. Christie was convicted of her murder and recently confessed to Manville’s murder. Frank Sterling was released from prison last week. If the polygraph had accurately identified Christie as the killer, little Kali Ann Poulton would still be alive and Frank Sterling would not have spent 22 years in prison for a crime that he did not commit.

This horrific case follows on the heels of the March 23, 2010 case where the murder of five Newark, NJ, teens in 1978 was solved by the recent confession of one of the killers, Lee Anthony Evans. Evans was the main suspect at the time of the initial investigation and took at least one polygraph test, which he passed. With no leads a
