(DeKalb, IL)  —   Jack McCullough’s name is finally clear. A judge yesterday cleared the now 77-year-old man of the 1957 kidnapping and murder of a seven-year-old northern Illinois girl. McCullough served just four years of a life sentence before the evidence showed he was 40-miles away at the time of the girl’s death. McCullough says he wants to make sure people no longer think he’s a monster.
