West Memphis 3

Redirected from Damien Echols

The West Memphis 3 were three people tried and convicted for triple homicide in the 1993 murders of three children in the Robin Hood Hills[?] in West Memphis, Arkansas in the United States. One of them, Damian Echols, was sentenced to death; the other two were sentenced to life in prison. It is claimed by some that all three are innocent. A support group of people protesting Echols' innocence was formed shortly after the convictions. Two films, Paradise Lost and Paradise Lost - Revelations, have documented this case, as has a book, Blood Of Innocents.
