"Shortly after three eight-year-old boys were found mutilated and murdered in West Memphis, Arkansas, local newspapers stated the killers had been caught. The police assured the public that the three teenagers in custody were definitely responsible for these horrible crimes. Evidence?

The same police officers coerced an error-filled “confession” from Jessie Misskelley Jr., who is mentally handicapped. They subjected him to 12 hours of questioning without counsel or parental consent, audio-taping only two fragments totaling 46 minutes. Jessie recanted it that evening, but it was too late— Misskelley, Jason Baldwin and Damien Echols were all arrested on June 3, 1993, and convicted of murder in early 1994.

Although there was no physical evidence, murder weapon, motive, or connection to the victims, the prosecution pathetically resorted to presenting black hair and clothing, heavy metal t-shirts, and Stephen King novels as proof that the boys were sacrificed in a satanic cult ritual. Unfathomably, Echols was sentenced to death, Baldwin received life without parole, and Misskelley got life plus 40.

For over 13 years, The West Memphis Three have been imprisoned for crimes they didn’t commit. Echols waits in solitary confinement for the lethal injection our tax dollars will pay for. They were all condemned by their poverty, incompetent defense, satanic panic and a rush to judgment. " - Taken by www.wm3.org


What are your thoughts on this case?

With the lack of evidence against the 3, i say they are innocent until proven guilty.. by some actual HARD evidence!...

We are all waiting for the DNA testing results to come back.....

I have read a lot about this case living near where this happened and I am of the belief that the step father did it.  Those boys were tried and found guilty becuase they are into the goth scene, plain and simple.

The step father is very strange, if you've seen the movies "Paradise Lost" and "Paradise Lost Revelations" relating to this case you do get a weird feeling about him, but still.. there is no evidence against him either.. he definitely fits the profile but again no evidence.

Also what gets me is 3 years later his wife is found dead in his home and her death is found "inconclusive" very weird!

Mark actually has his own forum where you can ask him questions etc... if you choose to do this .. be nice.. many people are very protective of him and believe the wm3 are guilty... i just don't know how anyone can find them guilty with no evidence.. !

http://p082.ezboard.com/fmurderincorporatedfrm39   That's Marks forum his nick name is KizzaMyaz  (Majority of these people think they are guilty)

http://p210.ezboard.com/bwestmemphisthreediscussion this board believes the wm3 are innocent... LOTS of helpful info!

IMO The cops did the worst job ever!
