Here's info on the West Memphis Three case. There are two sides to the West Memphis Three case. The movies about the West Memphis Three present the side of the defendants. They were found guilty by a unanimous jury the first time and then plead guilty last year instead of waiting for a trial. One reason they were found guilty was because of their repeated confessions and statements. Misskelley confessed FIVE times, three times to the detectives, once to the police and once to his own lawyer. Echols went around saying he committed the crimes to at least three different people after the crimes were committed. All of the West Memphis three had failed alibis. Echols' journal contained morbid images and references to dead children. Echols' stated under cross-examination that he was interested in the occult. The police took a necklace from Echols when he was arrested. An outside crime lab later found blood from two distinct DNA sources on the necklace. One source was consistent with Echols himself. The second source was consistent with both victim Steven Branch and co-defendant Baldwin. A car load of people saw Echols in muddy clothes near the crime scene. Echols had a history of threats of violence, violence, psychiatric treatment and psychotic behavior. His reported actions included brutally killing a dog, starting fires at his school, threatening to kill his teachers and parents and stating he liked to drink blood. See court documents exhibit 500 for evidence of this. for the other side of the story see wm3truth com
