OH NOOOOOOOO :( SO SAD AND WRONG.
Very sad news. :(
I am appalled that a case with so many in discrepancies, holes and multiple violations was allowed to go this far. Thoroughly appalled not to mention extremely angry.Condolences to Mr Hughes' family, friends, advocates, supporters and everyone else who was involved in this. What an utter travesty.
I have enjoyed reading your blog on this case. Forgive me but I haven't read every post about him; I only heard about this case a few days ago from people talking about how Texas was going to execute another "innocent" man.It wasn't until I read an article a few hours ago that I realized that post-conviction DNA testing discovered the victim's blood on Hughes' clothing. How can you explain that?I am by no means an expert on this case, and I'm not naive enough to believe that the police have never framed an innocent man, BUT, in order to have framed Hughes, they would have had to have made the decision to do so within minutes of discovering the victims, one of whom was still alive. I find it hard to swallow that the investigating police at the crime scene decided right away that they were going to frame Hughes instead of actually investigating.I am not trying to sound accusatory towards your blog; in fact maybe you've covered all of this and I haven't yet read it. But it doesn't seem to me that Texas just executed an innocent man at all.
