Another reason not to live in Mississippi

Yesterday, the net discovered an article in Reason Online about a quack doctor
in Mississippi using fabricated bite mark evidence to convict people of crimes. Capital crimes. The article itself is scary, including hints that Mississippi remains without a medical examiner in part because of this guy's popularity with the police. But to underline just how scary Mississippi is, I need to point out that ABC highlighted him in 1997 on a 20/20 episode titled "Junk Science" yet his testimony is still used to send people to death row.
