The Skeptical Juror and the Trial of Cameron Todd Willingham (Paperback)
Cameron Todd Willingham refused to walk to his own execution. He was innocent, he insisted, and so the guards on the Texas Death Row carried him to his death. He died for the crime of arson, for killing his own three young children in the flames. The Skeptical Juror examines the crime and the trial through transcripts and court documents, and presents a fictionalized view into what a jury deliberation in such a sensational crime might have been like. Then, in the aftermath section, an examination of new discoveries in arson-investigation science show that Willingham may have been innocent. He may be the first conclusively demonstrated innocent person to be executed in America.
