Santae A. Tribble, 50, makes plans last month in Washington with a friend for whom he provides care at his home. In 1978, Tribble, then 17, was accused of murdering John McCormick, 63, a cab driver. Tribble, who maintains his innocence, was sentenced in January 1980 and spent 28 years in prison, based largely on hair found in a stocking mask near the crime scene. In January 2012, it was found that none of the 13 hairs recovered from the mask — including the one the FBI said matched Tribble's hair — shared Tribble's genetic profile.
