Evans, who is seeking unspecified damages, claims police had no evidence tying him to the arson murder of five teenage boys from Newark who disappeared in 1978.
"Not that the other guys didn't want to win, but they just bring a different mentality," Evans said. "Hopefully, I think we've found that, we've at least found a start, a foundation. And now we've got to build from there. That's what makes everybody optimistic."
