Omar Ameen, the Sacramento refugee fighting to remain in the United States after being accused of ties to the Islamic State group, appeared in a federal courtroom in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Ameen was accused of being a member of the Islamic State group, lying on his refugee application and of murdering an Iraqi police officer. The government's case hinged largely on supposed eyewitnesses who say he led the convoy into the Rawah district of Iraq's Al-Anbar province. But a KCRA 3 investigation showed that defense attorneys, after two years of intense negotiations and travel to Turkey, obtained what his public defender called "obliterating evidence." Cellphone data, cell tower "pings" and eyewitness testimony put him in Mersin, Turkey, within the hour of the Iraqi police officer's murder. See more in the video above.
