NPR's Nancy Solomon reports new revelations have emerged in the 1989 New York City Central Park jogger case, where a woman was raped, beaten and left for dead. New evidence implicates a man currently serving time for a similar attack. The evidence may exonerate five teenage boys who were convicted of the crime. One of the five is still in prison.
