Martin Tankleff (CBS)
But Marty isn't giving up: Harris didn't testify, but he did give Tankleff's defense team a sworn affidavit.
"One of the most striking facts that really stuck out was his identifying that Joseph Creedon had gloves with him," says Marty. "That was always a big mystery, because there were glove-like prints found in my house, and nobody ever found gloves."
And as Marty's hearing continues, private investigator Jay Salpeter brings in other witnesses who support Marty's innocence. They point to Joe Creedon and Peter Kent as the killers.
"New witnesses have been found, new witnesses have come forward," says Salpeter. "And we're still hopeful that we're going to bring Marty home."
One of those witnesses is Father Ron Lemmert, a Catholic priest, who told the court, with Glenn Harris' permission, that Harris told him the same story he told 48 Hours.
"He really poured his heart out, how, he said he couldn't sleep at night, his conscience was bothering him," the priest says. "And he really wanted to do the right thing, but he was a man who was terrified."
Perhaps the most dramatic witnesses are those who say that Joe Creedon tried to involve them in the murder plot: Joe Graydon, who knew Creedon, claims he and Creedon had made a failed attempt to ambush a man he now believes was Tankleff.
"We had to go up to the bagel store and make it look like a robbery," says Graydon. "He wasn't there. We missed him. We were supposed to catch him coming out of the back."
And there is Bill Ram, another associate of Creedon. He confirms Glenn Harris' story that the killers started out at his house the night of the murders.
Asked what he was doing that evening, Ram says, "I was hanging out at my house; I had a few people over."
Ram, a convicted drug dealer, not only corroborates Harris but says he himself spoke with Joe Creedon that night.
"He said, 'I'm working for somebody — who's got a partner in the bagel business that needs to be straightened out.' And he said, you know, there's some money in it for me if we go there and just, you know, he's going to threaten the guy or rough him up," Ram tells Moriarty.
Ram says that he turned Creedon down but that Glenn Harris didn't.
"When I saw him the next day, he was completely distraught," says Ram.
Asked what he means by distraught, Ram says, "Just shooken up — couldn't hold a thought — just scared to death. I told him, 'Listen keep your mouth shut.' I really didn't wanna be involved."
"What surprised you the most that you heard form these witnesses?" Moriarty asks Marty.
"Their honesty," he replies. "That after all these years that they would come forward and admit their involvement in such brutal crimes."
The final witness for Marty, and maybe the most surprising one, is 17-year-old Joe Guarascio, who comes to court to accuse his own father, Joe Creedon, of the murders.
