    Das, here's a link to Melissa's autopsy report. She didn't take any sleeping pills, but it is interesting:

    I dont understand what is taking so long either. A year is a long time to look at a knife. But I think it goes further than that. I think maybe it's been done for a while. I think a few people are trying to work out pride issues and wondering about future elections.

    I always think this is soooo sad when that happens. People who worry about how mistakes will be deemed. You would think that they would understand that people would see that by admitting a mistake, they would be seen on an even higher ground. Yeah, you might have to give the kids some money. Yeah, you will have to go on record and say you made a booboo, but what is more important in the long run? A person's pride or what is right. We've all seen the miscarraige of justice. It doesn't happen a lot, but when it does, it's pretty darn slow in making itself right. Too many lawyers wondering about the payout. Too many politicians wondering about the damage. Unfortunately that means innocent people sit in jail even longer. Justice should always come before pride, but that's just a wild dream of mine.

    Jeana, I love ya girl, but there is a reason why lie dectector tests are not admitted in court. I had an old friend years ago tell me how to beat one. Not that I needed to, so I asked another friend who was a member of the Texas Rangers to test me on it. Sure enough I lied my butt off through the entire test and beat it with flying colors.

    How did I do it? My advice was to sing, "Mary had a little Lamb" in my head for the entire interview.

    So I got to thinking....what if someone had disjointed thoughts? Wouldn't that skew the test? Not to be one who is shy I went and asked. yep. Random thoughts mess the test up. The test is built on the fact that most people can concentrate. But not all can.

    I hadn't seen it before and thought it was interesting. I'm not ready to hang him because of it. GEEZ! LOL Anyway, there is a lot of information at that site and was hoping people who've never studied the info on this case would get involved enough so that it may justify having its own area!

    We love ya. It's a wacky case for sure. I'd love seeing it in it's own forum. I belong to photog forums who are wild about this case. There is much more public intrest in this one than most.
    Wouldn't hurt to give it a prelim......

    dasgal you have some great thoughts, enjoyed reading them. I wish i could remember that quote about evil occuring when good men stay silent...i think that sums up how u feel yes? Also Amy thanks for the information, with your diligence perhaps we could get a forum devoted to wm3.

    As far as the DNA analysis goes its pathetic how long its taking. And John Mark Beyers should have definetly been investigated, the US justice system is so corrupt.

    I just finished reading Devils Knot. I keep turning the pages waiting for the piece of evidence that really tied these 3 boys to the crime.

    The only think that I found somewhat compelling (I tossed the confession) was Jessie and the whiskey bottle. And even that does not tie the 3 to a crime.

    This has probably been addressed here but did the judge ever rule on the DNA testing?

    ETA: Just went to the site and read that as of 03/06 the testing has still not been done.

    Yes, Dna was sent it on 06/02/04.... still awaiting results.... the list of all evidence and items sent to be tested is listed here on a previous post, see #109.

    I just finished watching both the Paradise lost dvd's.I find myself sitting on the fence leaning slightly towards the three being innocent.I think if anything the three deserve a new trial.I think there was alot of misconduct concerning the confession from Jessie and some of the evidence.

    I don't know if JMB had anything to do with the murders,but I noticed when he was put on the stand concerning the knife he give to HBO,he looked as guilty as hell.He had lost all his confidence when he testified.His eyes tell a story.
    Something else that really bothers me about him is he spends 75% of the time on film quoting the bible and basically claiming to be such a god fearing man.What kind of religous person whose step son is murdered and mutilated by a knife,encourages young kids to fight with knives.As well as commit fraud,steal,sell drugs to an undercover police officer and lie his face off for a polygraph.I can understand never being the same again when you lose a child,that goes without saying,but you cannot blame becoming a criminal on this.
    I am very interested to see what the results of the dna tests say.I wonder when Paradise Lost 3 is supposed to come out,anyone have a clue?

    May 24, 2004

    Filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky are starting production of their third Paradise Lost film this summer. Funded by HBO and slated for theatrical release in 2006, the new film aims to tell the definitive story of the West Memphis Three case, from the initial arrests to the conclusion of their appeals process. Paradise Lost 3 (working title) will combine material from Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills and Revelations: Paradise Lost 2 with new footage soon to be filmed
    .

    I haven't kept up on this case, but last year I did start reading the docs on the website, specifically police reports. Echols was going around telling classmates that he and the other boys did it. He seemed like a good susspect to me. I really didn't get the suspicion of the stepfather. He might be a lowlife, according to most moral standards today, but that hardly would qualify him as a pedofile and child multilator. Two different species there. All too often the people who do these kind of heinous crimes don't even have a criminal record. So what do you guys think? Are Echols and pals guilty? Is this a case worth researching more? What does Misskelley say today?

    The step father is truly a creepy guy. I wouldn't want to be in a room alone with him, that's for sure. I just don't see any evidence that he murdered the boys.

    THis is another case which fascinates and confounds me. I can't wait to see what the DNA has to say if and when those results ever come back!

    I agree. They all came from the same neighborhood and from what I read, it was a low income area, wheher they lived in a house or trailer with a huge drug problem. I suspect that most of the players/player's parents were not that much different from the stepfather.
