After almost a decade behind bars, Ernie Lopez arrives at his home in Texas. He briefly celebrates missed holidays before breaking down remembering Isis Vas, the 6-month-old who died in his care. Lopez's conviction of sexually assaulting Vas was recently thrown out by a Texas court. Joint reporting from FRONTLINE, ProPublica and NPR raised questions about the evidence used against him.
