The Testimony of the Houlihan's Witnesses at the Willie "Pee Wee" Veasy Trial

In the most recent season of the Undisclosed Podcast, we covered the case of Willie Veasy ("Pee Wee"), who was convicted of murdering John Lewis ("The Jamaican"), in North Philadelphia, about 8 miles from the Houlihan's where Veasy worked. The murder occurred shortly before 10:00 P.M. on January 24, 1992, and the strongest evidence of Veasy's innocence is his time card from the Houlihan's, which showed him clocking in at 5:59 P.M. on January 24, 1992 and clocking out at 1:52 or 1:54 A.M. on January 25, 1992.

This time card evidence was supported by the testimony of two witnesses from the Houlihan's: (1) Seth Schram, the back-of-the-house manager on January 24th; and (2) Susan Meyers, the front-of-the-house-manager on January 24th. Here is their testimony in full:
