    My question is, is there a chance that the three really did it? I mean, I agree, the interrogation of Miskelly was shady and the witness testimony as suspect and maybe they had zero evidence. But, that just proves that they should not have been found guilty because of the horrible DA's office in West Memphis. I think Damien was suspect and I think Jason would do what Damien told him. I would have found them not-guilty, but not innocent.

    At mG - I think that is a very good way to look at it. The problem here is once convicted now we want a reason to prove that they are innocent. That tends to only come for the majority once someone else is convicted. Sometimes for some it can come without another conviction but at least someone to blame or a "strong suspect". This is exactly what happened in the story of the West Memphis 3. Mark Byers blamed the 3 convicted for years and the 3 convicted blamed him for the murders. Now after release and other evidence, Byers and the convicted 3 blame Terry Hobbs. Unfortunately I would not expect to see another conviction in the murders of the forgotten 8 year old victims. Arkansas does not want to play in this sandbox anymore and they are more than happy to leave everything right where it is. Sad but true! Nic

    Why would those Boys go into those woods? I've never heard a reason that comes close to making sense to me.

    Boys and woods/creeks go hand in hand. Growing up I lived within 200 yards of a creek/wooded area with dirt trails. When my parents told us to stay out of the creek, within 20 minutes guess where we were a lot of the time?

    Have you looked into the “West Memphis Puzzle” theory? Coincidentally I relistened to your WM3 podcast last weekend and did some searching and came upon it. It links a lot of what her son said to Terry Hobbs. Just wanting to know your thoughts on the theory. https://thewestmemphispuzzle.blog/2014/05/06/putting-the-pieces-together-2/#comments
