In Law & Disorder, we chronicled the story of Cameron Todd Willingham, who was executed in Texas in 2004 for the arson murder of his three young daughters in Corsicana, Texas in 1991.
Willingham, known as Todd, seemed like a pretty reprehensible character. Not only did he kill his children in a painful and cowardly way, he also may have abused his wife Stacy, and drank and ran around. Governor Rick Perry publicly proclaimed him “a monster.”
The only problem is, Todd didn’t commit the crime. In fact, no one committed the crime, because there was no crime. And last week, the story got even worse.
