CLAUDE JONES was executed in 2000 in the state of Texas--just one of 152 men and women put to death during George W. Bush's reign as governor.
Ten years later, the case is making headlines. The forensics evidence used to convict Jones of capital murder was submitted for DNA. The result: the DNA doesn't match.
A single hair found at the crime scene, supposedly proven to belong to Jones, was the key piece of evidence in his conviction. The hair was recently tested at the request of the Texas Observer and the New York-based Innocence Project--and was found to match the victim of the crime.
