After 20 years of jail, a wrongfully convicted Idaho Falls man will walk free tomorrow

IDAHO FALLS — In what was likely his last evening behind bars, Christopher Tapp spoke exclusively with EastIdahoNews.com about his plans as a free man.

In an interview from the Bonneville County Jail Tuesday, Tapp tells EastIdahoNews.com reporter Stephan Rockefeller what’s going through his mind and his emotions about his pending release.

Tapp’s murder conviction will stand, but he will no longer have a rape conviction, according to the agreement between the defense and prosecution.

“I’m innocent, and I’m going to continue to raise that flag. I’ll do as much as I can to prove my innocence,” Tapp says in the interview. “As the years go on, I’ll continue to hold a banner up for Carol (Angie Dodge’s mother) and Angie. I don’t want the city of Idaho Falls or anyone to stop looking for the true killer.”
