Marilyn Manson - Marilyn Manson Befriends West Memphis Three's Echols

Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has befriended one of the West Memphis Three after he thanked the singer/songwriter for helping to win him freedom.
Manson was among the celebrities who insisted the incarcerated trio's murder verdict should be overturned as new information became available.
As a result of the campaign for justice, Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. and Jason Baldwin, won their freedom last year (11). They were convicted in 1994 of killing three young Arkansas boys.
And Echols has reached out to Manson to personally thank him for his support.
The rocker tells the Los Angeles Times, "He thinks I've been through worse than him. I can't explain to him, 'Man, you made it through 18 years alone in prison.' I admire his power and his courage. It's inspiring."
Echols introduced Manson at the recent Revolver Golden Gods Awards.
