Where 3 lives hang in the balance...
Johnny Depp participated in the Voices for Justice rally for the so-called West Memphis Three. Jason Baldwin, Jessie Misskelley and Damien Echols, aka the West Memphis Three, were aged 16, 17 and 18 at the time of their arrest for allegedly torturing and killing three eight-year-old boys in West Memphis, AR. Damien Echols was sentenced to death, Jessie Misskelley, Jr. was sentenced to life imprisonment plus two 20-year sentences, and Jason Baldwin was sentenced to life imprisonment. During the trial, the prosecution asserted that the children were killed as part of a satanic ritual.
Based on this true story the book of the same titel is being made into a movie titled Deveil’s Knot to be directed by Atom Egoyan and starring Reese Witherspoon, Colin Firth and Mireille Enos. Witherspoon will play the mother of one of the murdered victims.
