I’ve been following the case of the West Memphis Three, then-teenaged boys found guilty of murder in the mid 90s, since I saw the first of two documentaries on HBO forever ago. The story is fascinating, and appears to be up there with historic cases of complete injustice and legal ineptitude.

And I read today that DNA testing concluded none of the genetic material at the crime scene belonged to Echols, Misskelly and Baldwin. That is potentially HUGE news, and hopefully will start a path for exoneration.

I recommend you check it out.
