Scott Whisnant covered the Hennis's 1989 retrial in Wilmington for the Star News. Whisnant wrote the book "Innocent Victims" detailing the case. He says in writing the book he hoped to present the facts that were available to him at the time, but the full truth of the two-decade old crime is still to be discovered.
Since Hennis has been aquitted the state can't pursue him because of double jeopardy, but that doesn't stop the Army from activating Hennis and beginning a court martial. Hennis is scheduled to report back to Fort Bragg by October 30.
