  Over the past several months this site has received a number of “comments” critical of my conclusion that the West Memphis Three—Echols, Baldwin and Misskelley—are guilty of killing three eight-year-old Cub Scouts in West Memphis, Arkansas in May 1993. A general theme emerged from these comments; namely, that three “dumbass teenagers” could not have committed such a heinous crime without leaving some evidence of involvement.

Second, despite the difficulty in getting his point across as to why he elected to get involved in the West Memphis Three case, Depp made this point that I will paraphrase. He said he viewed the documentary about the case—and this was...

09-23-12 UNREST IN WEST MEMPHIS 3 PARADISE   While Jessie Misskelley drifts into social oblivion, “West Memphis Three” leader Damien Echols and his first lieutenant Jason Baldwin have had rather frequent dustups dealing with the fame of celebrity. According to media reports, Echols throws Baldwin under the proverbial bus in his soon to be released memoir, “Life After Death.” The tear in the killer’s cloth apparently began last year as attorneys for the three men negotiated an Alford plea deal that would set them free. Baldwin apparently balked at the deal, saying he believed the three men would eventually get...
