The UK’s celebrated documentary director Patrick Forbes brings us The PhantomCarlos de Luna is the perfect example of being at the wrong place, at the wrong time one night of February, 1983. De Luna was executed by lethal injection in 1989 for the murder of the Wanda Lopez who was stabbed to death while working at a gas station in Corpus Cristi, Texas. Till today the Texan law enforcement has not given a formal pardon for the blunder mistake. 

The Synopsis 

THE PHANTOM tells the story of one of the darkest episodes in the long history of American justice. A story of how the State of Texas knowingly sent an innocent man to his death and left a serial killer at large. A case in which – for the first time – it can be conclusively proven that the US courts executed a blameless man. This film uncovers the shocking truth behind a tale of murder, corruption and lies that unfolded in the dusty, desperate streets of a Texas oil town nearly thirty years ago.
