This happened over a week ago, but i haven't been on here much due to travelling, etc. anwho. this is SO EXCITING. can't believe there wasn't already a thread. New York Times, Read More For those unfamiliar with the case, here's a short summary. In 1993, three little boys were found dead. Three teenagers were tried and found guilty of performing a 'satanic ritual' and killing the three little boys. The evidence against them was a false/coerced confession, and circumstantial evidence. The three teenagers had no previous connection to the three little boys. Two of the teenagers were sentenced to life in prison, and the "ringleader" was put on death row. A stepfather of one of the three little boys had a criminal history of drugs, of violence (and possible rape/sexual abuse) towards people, specifically women. He was not even questioned regarding the murder of his stepson and the boy's friends until 2007. Through media pressure, and funding from followers of the case and some celebrities, DNA testing has been done. No DNA of the WM3 was found on any of the evidence. They did, however find DNA evidence of the violent stepfather. And the friend that that man had said he was with that night. Despite all of this, the state of Arkansas has refused to let the three go, until August 19th 2011. But it wasn't perfect. The WM3 had to give an "Alford Plea"- essentially saying that they are innocent, but admitting that if it went to trial again they'd most likely be found guilty again. Had said trial occurred and they had been found guilty, the "ringleader," Damien, would most likely have received the death sentence. There is continued pressure to fully exonerate the WM3, but at least now they are no longer behind bars!
