For part 3 in our tour of Satanic hysteria, it's 1993 and the ritual abuse panic of the '80s is coughing its last gasp in Arkansas!
Faced with the horrific murder of three young boys, West Memphis law enforcement, media and the community at large pointed the finger at three misfit, somewhat delinquent teenagers - Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jesse Misskelley. When one of the suspects confessed to the murders, it was only the beginning of the story.
Sean takes us through the facts of the case, the trial, and 18 years of legal battles and celebrity concerts. Along the way, evidence is uncovered, colorful characters are badly impersonated, and we ultimately face the question: Can it really be this easy to get convicted of murder?
