Fighting to free Zach Witman

For fifteen years, Zach Witman has been serving a life sentence, without the chance of parole for the murder of his brother Greg. Today, Zach’s parents announced a $100,000 reward for information leading to the release of their son, and introduced the team they hope will turn this case around.

For six years, I’ve been working with George Matheis, owner of Modern Combative Systems LLC, first as a photographer, then as a student. We’ve become close friends and I was not surprised in the least when I heard that George had been contacted by the Witman family to help with the case.

George has offered unique insight into the case, not only with his edged weapons expertise, but with his very pointed critique of the investigating police department. IF the Witman team can convince the District Attorney or the Supreme Court to hear the case on appeal, I believe there is a very good chance that Zach, now 29, will be a free man.
