On March 14, 2011, Bill Clutter was featured in Parade Magazine in an article "TV vs. Reality", comparing his work to the fictional character Kalinda on the "Good Wife". He started his career as a law firm investigator.
"Ofentimes, it's what you uncover in the investigation that will turn a case, whether it's evidence exonerating someone or proof of liability in a civil case. The legwork that goes into these cases involves the investigators", the article quoted Clutter.
About the owner
Bill Clutter started his career in Springfield, Illinois, appointed to his first death penalty case in 1985, while still in college. He went on to work on two cases involving innocent men who were condemned to die. His investigation was cited by a federal judge in freeing Randy Steidl, who spent 17 years behind bars, most of it on death row, when he was released in 2004. Clutter's work on the Steidl case has been featured on CBS 48 Hours, On the Case with Paula Zahn, and CNN Death Row Stories hosted by Susan Sarandon. Illinois lawmakers pointed to Steidl's case when they voted to abolish the death penalty in 2011. That same year, Clutter was appointed to work on death penalty cases in Kentucky. He has worked with the Department of Public Advocacy contractually on a number of cases. He now resides in Louisville.
He also worked with the defense team and experts to conduct crime scene reconstruction and blood stain pattern analysis that contributed to the acquittal of David Camm in Oct. 2013. Camm, a former Indiana State Police trooper, spent 13 years in prison for the murders of his wife and two children. The crime was committed by a career criminal who left a prison issued sweatshirt at the scene, along with his DNA and palm print.
