Burke Correctional Center in Waupun, Wis., 10 years into serving her 18-year conviction and sentence for shaking a baby to death, while babysitting. Edmunds is one of more than 2,000 people falsely convicted of a serious crime who have been exonerated in the United States in the past 23 years, according to a new national registry painstakingly assembled by the University of Michigan Law School and the Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern University School of Law. It is the most complete list of exonerations ever compiled. (AP Photo/Morry Gash, File)
