Seasoned investigator Jim Kenney worked for Jones' original defense team. Kenney, who always believed in Jones' innocence, began focusing his investigative efforts on showing that another man, Joel Russell, possibly committed the crimes. At the time, Kenney said Jones and Russell looked very similar. However, it's not clear if there were any efforts by police or prosecutors to investigate Russell following Jones' exoneration. The DNA in the case, though, is still in storage at the original testing lab, and could possibly be tested now.
