Inconclusive Willingham Report

Chuck Lindell reports in the Austin American-Statesman:

A state commission acknowledged Thursday that fire science has improved since investigators concluded that Cameron Todd Willingham killed his three children by setting fire to his Corsicana home in 1991.

But in issuing its long-awaited draft report on the Willingham case, the Texas Forensic Science Commission reached no conclusions about whether Willingham was convicted and executed based on evidence now considered scientifically unreliable.

As we have noted on this blog before, even if the forensic evidence tells us nothing, there is much other evidence indicating Willingham's guilt.
