(CNN)Two men serving life sentences for murder in a Florida prison have been linked to two other murders with the help of newly discovered DNA samples, which led to the exoneration of another man who wrongfully served 37 years in prison for the rape and murder of Barbara Grams in 1983.

Amos Robinson and Abron Scott allegedly raped and murdered 19-year-old Grams, whose beaten body was found behind a dental office in Tampa Heights on August 18, 1983, Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren said during a news conference Thursday after he was suspended as the state attorney by Florida Gov.
Ron DeSantis for his stance against criminalizing abortion providers.More than 2,800 have been wrongly convicted in the US. Lawmakers and advocates want to make sure theyre paid their dues.A grand jury indicted Robinson and Scott Thursday for the rape and murder of Linda Lansen, whose beaten body was found in Town and Country in July 1983 in bushes with a gunshot wound to the head, Warren said. "These two men not only robbed me, but they robbed a 7-year-old little girl of her mother," said Linda Sheffield, Lansen's niece, during Thursday's news conference."When they're initially murdered, the shock is there, but 39 years later the shock is no longer there," she said. "But the void stays, and the pain stays and the crying stays. It doesn't go away."Read MoreRobinson and Scott are also subjects of other cold case investigations from the same time period in the Tampa Bay area, Warren said."We now know that these two men carried out a sinister spree of rape and murder in Tampa Bay in the summer and fall of 1983," Warren said.It is unclear if Robinson and Scott have attorneys at this time.DNA evidence leads to exoneration and new convictionIn 2018, Warren's office created a Conviction Review Unit to help overturn and prevent wrongful convictions. Two years later, Robert DuBoise, who spent 37 years in prison for Grams' rape and murder, was exonerated."Our investigation found DNA evidence that established Robert did not murder Barbara Grams; however, that DNA evidence did provide new leads and launched a fresh investigation," Warren said.The DNA sample that did not contain material from DuBoise was run through a national database containing DNA samples of convicted felons and led investigators to Scott and Robinson, who were already serving life sentences in a Florida prison for a murder they committed in Pinellas County in October of 1983, Warren said.Robert DuBoise outside his home in Tampa, Florida, in October 2020. With that information, investigators were able to build a case for Grams' murder and open a cold case investigation into Lansen's murder.At the time of DuBoise's trial, there wasn't any physical or circumstantial evidence connecting DuBoise to the attack, according to The Florida Innocence Project. Before his conviction, he was transported to Hillsborough County Jail. A jailhouse informant who spoke with DuBoise later testified falsely that DuBoise had confessed to the crime during his jail stay, The Florida Innocence Project said."I am sad for the families who have waited so long to get true closure," DuBoise told CNN Friday. "I spent 37 years imprisoned for a crime I was totally innocent. This is what happens when the police focus on the wrong person, make up evidence to fit their theory and don't investigate to find the truth. Lives are ruined and communities are less safe."

3 most ridiculous Dan Campbell quotes from Lions training camp already, man

These Dan Campbell quotes from Detroit Lions training camp are so fricking incredible, man.

For strictly soundbite purposes, HBO made a fantastic decision by putting Motor City Dan Campbell and his Detroit Lions on this season of Hard Knocks, man.

No kneecaps are safe in this NFL preseason, man. While the Lions look to build off a surprisingly decent 3-13-1 season for their lofty standards, all eyes are on their one-of-a-kind second-year head coach, man. Campbell has quickly emerged as the best quote to grace a football field since the iconic John McKay was saying whatever he felt like coaching the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, man.

His Lions “are fricking starving … so the hyenas better get out of the way,” man.

Dan Campbell to the fans before the Lions’ open practice at Ford field: “We are fricking starving … so the hyenas better get out of the way.”

When it comes to receiver Josh Reynolds, “he’s slippery, man.” Whether he is the Praying Mantis, the Spider of Death or the Fricking Serpent, this wideout has more nicknames than Shaq, man.

Dan Campbell on Josh Reynolds: "He’s slippery man. I call him the praying mantis. He’s the spider of death. There’s something about him. Fricking serpent."

Tyler Dunne may “have zero clue what, ‘we’ll tread water as long as it takes to f*****g bury you’ means, but got dam, it’s beautiful, man.

“We’ll tread water as long as it takes to fucking bury you.”

I have zero clue what this means but, by God, it’s beautiful.

Why be the myth or the legend, when you can be the man like Dan Fricking Campbell, man?

Dan Campbell is becoming a fricking Hard Knocks legend by the nanosecond, man

We are only weeks away from crying out two doubleshot ventis from our collective tear ducts at the podium (doosh, doosh!), but what if these aren’t your same old sorry Lions, man? These men might have the heart of a lion, the eye of a tiger or any other cliched analogy to a ferocious big cat, man. Assuming Jared Goff has learned where the sun goes, they could be a fricking wagon, man!

On the whole, Detroit should be something around a third-place team in the NFC North this season, man. Even though Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers is into Tool, witchcraft and cleansing these days, it is hard to see the Lions being better than the Packers right now, man. Probably not the Minnesota Vikings either, but the Chicago Bears downright suck, man.

Overall, there is a lot to be positive about with this Lions team, man. Not only did they pick up Aidan Hutchinson from the nearby land of khakis, they powered through the awkwardness Jim Harbaugh style to “steal” Jameson Williams away from the Minnesota Vikings, man. How sure are we that Kwesi Adofo-Mensah knows what he’s doing, man? Watch out for your kneecaps, man!

How can you not want to run through a barbed-wire fence for Motor City Dan Campbell, man?
