You need to do some research and investigate the reliability of eyewitness memory.
Can the actual phrasing of a question alter one's memory? Do witnesses tend to "reconstruct" their memory, adding details based on assumptions rather than memory? Why aren't memories that are elicited through hypnosis admissible as testimony in most courts?
A good case study to look at is the Kennedy assassination. How did memory impact the outcome of the trial?
