LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The David Camm case is attracting attention beyond the courtroom. Thirteen years after the crime, it's being taught in the classroom.
A group of high school seniors has been studying the David Camm case for college credit. They admit, sometimes they feel a personal connection. The high school seniors were five years old in September of 2000, when Brad, Jill, and Kim Camm were murdered.
Two of the victims would be close to the students' age now. As part of a class at Prosser Career Education Center, they've studied David Camm's case for years. "I live five minutes away from where David Camm lived," said Lexi Miyahara.
On Wednesday, the students went on a hands-on field trip to the courtroom, a chance to observe Camm's murder trial after his previous two convictions were overturned. "It's nothing like TV, of course," said Greg Huda. "I got to see a lot of back-and-forth between the prosecution and defense."
Unlike a jury, the students have studied the case extensively. They heard from Charles Boney, who has already been convicted in the murders, and who told reporters he still thinks about the victims.
"Something's missing," Miyahara said about Boney, while Huda commented regarding him, "I try to listen to them, and take from what I can, but he's not really a trustworthy person."
When asked how they would decide if asked to deliver a verdict, the reaction was mixed: three undecided, and three not guilty, and one who said, "Uncertain, but after Boney, he's going home."
Even thought the classmates agree they are deeply divided about Camm's innocence or guilt, they're hoping to come back and view more of the trial.
