Governor replaces Lubbock M.E. with former Lubbock M.E. on forensic board

By James Clark | email

Governor Rick Perry continues his shake-up of a state panel with Lubbock ties. The Texas Forensics Panel was about to review a report concluding a faulty arson investigation led to a Texas inmate's execution. The commission, which oversees professional conduct of forensic laboratories and facilities, was to consider arson findings that led to the 2004 execution of Cameron Willingham.

Governor Perry appointed former Lubbock Chief Medical Examiner Randall Frost who is now with Bexar County.  Frost replaces current M.E. Sridhar Natarajan who was not re-appointed.   The Governor also announced a Fort Worth defense attorney would not be re-appointed to the Texas Forensic Science Commission.
