Dallas, TX – The Texas Forensic Science Commission has released its report on the Cameron Todd Willingham case. Willingham was executed in 2004 for setting a fire that killed his three daughters in Corsicana. As KUT's Matt Largey from Austin reports, the commission was asked to investigate the now-discredited science used to convict Willingham.
