This is a story about a horrific massacre and a death row inmate's claims of innocence. Kevin Cooper's case has drawn worldwide attention, including from Pope Francis and Kim Kardashian West. The heartbreaking story about the brutal assault that left four dead and one young survivor in Chino Hills, Calif., also raises questions about the initial police investigation, the loss of key evidence, and whether someone else is actually the killer. "Nearly 20 years ago, I got a stack of letters from an inmate at San Quentin Prison," "48 Hours" correspondent Erin Moriarty reports. "His name is Kevin Cooper – and he wrote that he had been framed, as he put it, 'for something that I didn't do.'" Moriarty and "48 Hours" began exploring the case, the investigation, and Cooper's claims of innocence when she got the letters, and her reporting continues to this day. In 1983, someone brutally murdered Doug and Peggy Ryen, their daughter Jessica, 10, and a family friend, Christopher Hughes, 11. … [Read more...] about Kevin Cooper case: Was the wrong man convicted in the 1983 Chino Hills massacre?

The U.S. remains the world's largest weapons exporter, a position it has held since the late 1990s. Our biggest customer? Saudi Arabia. That business reality may help explain President Donald Trump's reluctance to crack down on the kingdom whose royal rulers have been accused of murdering a Saudi dissident journalist who lived in the U.S. when he disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. In the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, the U.S. sold a total of $55.6 billion of weapons worldwide — up 33 percent from previous fiscal year, and a near record. Fiscal 2012 remains the record year for dollars earned from weapons exports: $69 billion in arms sales, with $29 billion of that to Saudi Arabia. (Country breakdowns for the 2018 fiscal year weren't available.) "I don't like the concept of stopping an investment of $110 billion into the United States," President Trump said at an Oval Office event Thursday, dismissing the idea of stopping weapons sales … [Read more...] about Saudi Arabia buys more U.S. weapons than any other country
