Cameron Todd Willingham was executed in Texas in 2004, after a jury convicted him of setting a 1991 house fire that killed his three young daughters. In 2006, the non-profit Innocence Project presented evidence to the Texas Forensic Science Commission, concluding that "expert arson analysis shows an innocent man was executed." In 2009, the New Yorker profiled the case and highlighted a report from Craig Beyler, a nationally regarded fire science expert. Beyler's report said that the original case was built on faulty evidence.
