just read a report that says the train was on fire before it uncoupled and derailed. The firecrews where there to put it out and then after they where done it uncoupled and sent the fuel cars down into the town. Apparently still on fire.

That makes the question about the dead-man brake superfluous, they released it to uncouple the wagons... and then forgot to activate it again.

The company has thrown the conductor under the bus by saying he didn't set enough hand breaks.

They are saying up to 60 people are either dead or missing.

Doubt it was the conductor... unless he uncoupled the wagons and not the firefighters. In any case, the finger points in the direction of whoever uncoupled those things.
