On this episode of Those Conspiracy Guys we discuss one of the more famous miscarraiges of justice with an Arkansas trio of young men, known as The West Memphis 3, who were convicted of the murders of three boys in the city of West Memphis, served 18 years in prison, and were released after a celebrity star studded campaign for justice allowed them to be set free under a legal technicality.
Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Miskelly Jnr were said to have brutally taken the lives of Stevie Branch, Chris Byers and Michael Moore in what was purported to the court to be a satanic paedophile sex ritual. These lads were put through the legal system ringer and evidence and testimony stacked up against them.
With new evidence, reinterviewing of witnesses, multiple documentaries and a concerted public effort to rebalance the scales of justice, the West Memphis 3 were released from prison in 2011. But the question remains, who did kill those three little boys? Fingers are pointed at many people involved closely with the case and even a few mysterious figures. Cormac Moore from the Project 10 podcast joins me to discuss the various theories and how the facts in this case were grossly misrepresented to convict some innocent people.

As someone from Arkansas, I have to say, some of your accents were spot on.
And yes, the whole alfred plea thing was stupid and made our state look like a joke.
Keep up the good work,
There is a current podcast that gets deeper into the case, if you guys are interested in learning more. It’s called Truth and Justice With Bob Ruff. You can find it on Audioboom.com, they also have a Facebook page by the same name. Very compelling and complex case.
Top ten regrets: 1. Googling the crime scene for this case.
