The fire moved quickly through the house, a one-story wood-frame structure in a working-class neighborhood of Corsicana, in northeast Texas. Flames spread along the walls, bursting through doorways, blistering paint and tiles and furniture. Smoke pressed against the ceiling, then banked downward, seeping into each room and through crevices in the windows, staining the morning sky.
Buffie Barbee, who was eleven years old and lived two houses down, was playing in her back yard when she smelled the smoke. She ran inside and told her mother, Diane, and they hurried up the street; that’s when they saw the smoldering house and Cameron Todd Willingham standing on the front porch, wearing only a pair of jeans, his chest blackened with soot, his hair and eyelids singed.

Islamic State, also known as ISIS, has released a number of new images purporting to show a man being stoned to death after being suspected of being gay.

The images show a man being led into a field in the town of Homs, Syria, with his hands tied behind his back.

As he is told to run into the field, over ten men throw rocks at him from behind, the Mirror reports.

According to reports, a number of residents of the town witnessed the killing.

The militants have released a number of images and videos in the past year showing the brutal killings of men accused of homosexuality.

In February ISIS released extremely graphic images of the execution of a man for being gay. After surviving a seven-storey drop, the man was stoned to death.

Back in January, the extremist group executed two men for being gay. The men were thrown from a tall building.

ISIS last month released more images of yet another man being thrown from a building for being gay, however the man survives the fall, before being stoned to death.
