District Attorney Travis Page now has jurisdiction over Mark Carver's case as of July 1, 2021, when he took office after the retirement of the previous district attorney who had overseen the case since its inception. Many observers are eager to see what developments may occur as a result in the change of leadership. Mark Carver was released from prison in June 2019 when his conviction was vacated due to discredited touch DNA data and video proof of an investigator feeding information about the case to Carver during interrogation, among several other inconsistencies from the original trial. An appeal of this decision by the district attorney at the time was rejected by court in April 2021. Mark Carver is free to move about within the state of North Carolina with an ankle monitor as he awaits further developments in his case. Carver's attorneys have said they will continue to work for Carver's exoneration. No guarantee exists that a second trial will take place given the lack of credible evidence at this point in the case.
