Damien Echols

Former death row prisoner in Arkansas, freed in 2011. He was one of the West Memphis Three, the young men in West Memphis, Arkansas, who were imprisoned for the 1993 slayings of three 8-year-old boys after an investigation largely fueled by unsubstantiated rumors of a Satanic ritual. This weekend, Echols traveled to Little Rock, Arkansas, to protest the state’s plan to execute inmates in rapid succession.
