My journey to the "West Memphis 3" truth.

Introduction : 

On May 5, 1993, three 8-year-old boys, Steve Branch, Christopher Byers and Michael Moore, went missing in the early evening hours in West Memphis, Arkansas. Their bodies were found the next day submerged in a creek in a park-like area known as Robin Hood Hills. About a month later three suspects, Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, were arrested and charged with their murders. All three were convicted in early 1994. Baldwin and Misskelley received life sentences, while Echols was sentenced to death.

On August 19, 2011, the three men were released from prison after entering "Alford pleas," meaning that they pled guilty but did not admit to the act, and are allowed to maintain their innocence. In return they were sentenced to time served and set free. (

My experience :

2 years ago, I watched Lost paradise trilogy, then west of memphis and I was really upset by the way 3 innocents people were convicted by the system to fill the society needs to condemn someone.
1 monts ago, I watch Devil’s Knot with my wife. Telling her all the insights I saw previously in the documentaries, persuaded of Terry Hobbs guilt.

Here I am today (2 am in the morning) after 3 weeks of reading 24 hr/24hr all the confessions from Misskelley, Buddy Lucas, affidavit from bennie guy, Terry hobbs, Jacoby, looking on satellite maps the crime scene, trying to clock the distance in bike between stevie branch house where witness Ballard saw the kids with hobbs around hobbs house to the blue beacon woods around 6:30 pm. I was all on Terry Hobbs, … But I wanted proof so I search by myself. I was starting to feel that I will find nothing that will convince me of someone guiltiness. But I found something about me… I was biased, strongly biased by the documentaries.

Starting to remove all the prejudice in favor of wm3, I was starting slowly to read everything around them, theirs alibis, theirs witnesses, theirs interviews, and to my surprise I feel relieve after weeks of obsessive reading about the case that the wm3 are probably guilty. (suddenly troubling that they are now free).

I won't explained the reasons why I found them guilty, but if you read around Misskelley confessions, William Winford Jones, Michael Carson, Ken Watkins, Buddy Lucas, Brent Davis interview with Misskelley and Stidham (, then Narlene, Anthony and Tabitha Hollingsworth all saw Damien Echols in muddy clothes around 9:30 pm with probably Jason (who look alike Domini Teer). All the Damien lies relative to his walking paths from his house (Broadway trailer park) to the Jason house (Lakeshore). Look at the polygraph results... If you believe in a big conspiracy like the government implication in 9/11, maybe you'll believe a conspiracy against the wm3.

Lakeshore to Broadway Trailer Park

I wanted to express my gratitude about how it feels to go through a journey like that and finding the truth by yourself and trying to remove all the prejudice (for or against wm3) and being the more objective and truthful about your reasonings.

Now I’m almost sad to have the “job done” kind of feeling knowing that tomorrow night I’ll probably doing something else than reading the callahan documentations!

If you want to know a little more I suggest :

Movies :

The movies are really creating prejudices, be aware...

The paradise lost trilogy documentaries movies (biased towards wm3)

West of Memphis (biased towards wm3)

The devil's knot movie (biased towards wm3)The websites I selected seem to be truthful and rational about theirs point of view :

Readings:   (biased towards wm3)  (biased against wm3)  (biased against wm3)

Devil's knot book by Mara Leveritt (biased towards wm3)

Blood of innocents book by Guy Reel (biased against wm3)   (documentations, confessions, affidavits, ect.)

Interesting facts :

Damien Echols interview is really incriminating :

  1. Ce n'est pas la même conclusion que la dernière fois que tu m'en as parlé. Il faudra que tu m'explique comment tu en es arrivé à ceci la prochaine fois qu'on se voit.
