Overview

DON'T GO INTO THE WOODS...

On the evening of May 5, 1993, Cub Scouts Christopher Byers, Steve Branch and Michael Moore rode their bikes into the deep woods of Robin Hood Hills in West Memphis. Before dawn, all three would be dead-horribly slain after a night of torture and mutilation. When the bodies were discovered in the shallow creek running through the forest, there was only one question on everyone's lips: What monsters could have committed such an unspeakable crime against three innocent eight-year-old boys?

Widespread rumors of psychopathic strangers, serial killers and twisted cults fueled the small-town hysteria. But the actual identity of the murderers would prove as shocking as the crime itself. Jessie Lloyd Misskelley, Jr., 17, Charles Jason Baldwin, 16, and Damien Wayne Echols, 18, were not only members of the community-they were hardly more than children themselves.

What really happened in Robin Hood Hills? What dark forces drove the killer to prey upon three young boys? Can we ever know for sure? Written by the investigative team that covered the story as it was breaking, here is the dramatic, in-depth account of a savage crime America will never forget.

    I don't know why they continue to sell this since the conviction

    I don't know why they continue to sell this since the conviction has ended and they are free.  It should at least come with a new disclaimer or addendum.
