More Strange Turns in Texas' Possible Execution of an Innocent Man

• by Radley Balko (Reason)
More odd developments in the  case of Cameron Todd Willingham, the Texas man executed in 2004 for killing his three daughters by intentionally setting fire to his own house. Nine arson experts have since come forward to denounce the testimony of the forensic arson specialists who testified at Willingham's trial. The latest was commissioned by the Texas Forensic Science Commission, a committee created by the state's legislature to ensure the integrity of forensic evidence presented in court. That report came out at about the same time as  an article in the  New Yorker presenting a strong case for Willingham's innocence.
