False confession expert in ‘Making a Murderer’ sees parallels with Moorhead murder case

 

MOORHEAD – Clarence Burcham just wanted to go on his family camping trip.

He thought if he told police what they wanted to hear, they would let him.

So after a pair of interrogations lasting more than six hours in 2009, Burcham confessed to the 1993 rape and strangling of Sharon Stafford, a Moorhead prostitute and his next-door neighbor.

It’s a plotline that might sound familiar to viewers of the highly publicized Netflix documentary series “Making a Murderer,” which considers whether then-16-year-old Brendan Dassey falsely confessed to the gruesome 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach.
