My name is Ava Jenkins. I’m not an investigative journalist, I don’t get paid to do this. I’m simply doing it because it feels like the right thing to do. Until recently I worked in the records department of my local PD. In all that time, few cases caught my attention like Samuel’s. Mainly because of the questions it threw up. Why was a silent convict given a death sentence? What truly happened the night Michael Franklin died? Why would someone who claims to be innocent, say nothing?

‘The Silent Truth’ is a Podcast exploring the twists and turns of Samuel’s story. However, there is simply too much information to fit into six episodes. This blog is updated as I investigate further into Samuel’s case, and attempt to uncover its secrets.
