Saturday, June 3rd, marks the 13th Anniversary of the day that 3 West Memphis teens were arrested for the murders of 3 young children.
Several years ago, Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin were arrested and later convicted of murdering 3 young boys.
To this day, supporters for the West Memphis Three believe they were convicted because they were different. They wore black and listened to heavy metal.
Saturday evening in Little Rock, supporters raised money for better defense lawyers and raised awareness of what they call a major injustice.
"We don`t believe they are murderers and we believe there is no evidence connecting them to this crime, and they were convicted and we're not satisfied with those verdicts," Amanda Lamb says.
One of the three men, Jessie Misskelley confessed to the murders and gave up the other 2 men in his confession. And after several appeals trying to avoid the death penalty, Damien Echols is down to his last straw in the federal courts.
