Did Texas execute an innocent man?

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

Read this chilling New Yorker article about Cameron Todd Willingham to understand why this is a very real possibility. I do have to quibble with the description by one expert of a very questionable theory about arson propounded by two male investigators as”old wives’ tale.”Why is it that gratuitously referencing an “old wife” as the source an incorrect belief is supposed to make falling for it seem especially stupid?

It’s still a very powerful story, though.
