The Devil’s Knot is the true story of the West Memphis Three based on the 2002 true crime book by Mara Leveritt about the 1993 murders of three eight-year-old children and the subsequent trials of three teenagers charged with and convicted of the crimes. The names of the three teens convicted are: Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley. They, however, would come to be known as the West Memphis Three. Leveritt’s book revolves around the central idea that the three teenagers convictions were a result of “Satanic panic” rather than actual evidence. The book also focuses on one of the victim’s stepfathers and his possible connection with the murders. All three teenagers convicted were released on August 19, 2011.
Thanks to Braz for the heads up!
