No money for man wrongly linked to BTK case

In 2004, a TV station incorrectly named Roger G. Valadez as a suspect in the BTK investigation. He sued -- and a jury awarded him $1.1 million, though it was capped by law at $250,000. Valadez died about a month after the verdict. The Kansas Supreme Court has just struck down the $250,000, too, saying that Valadez never showed that he suffered emotional distress severe enough to justify the award.
