An inside story about the witch hunts that led to the witch hunt against the West Memphis 3. These witch hunts in Arkansas include the murders of Syble Cooksey, Ruth Nisenbaum, Ronnie and Juanita Shulths in Jonesboro, and the brutal murders of three 8-year old boys; Stevie Branch, Chris Byers and Michael Moore in West Memphis. This book brings understanding to most of those who don't understand what happened in these 7 murders, and also brings understanding about the witch hunt against the West Memphis 3 and their controversial convictions. Find out how the author became the first supporter of Damien, Jason and Jessie the day they were arrested in June 1993, long before anyone referred to them as the "West Memphis 3".
THIS BOOK IS A TRUE AND FACTUAL ACCOUNT BASED ON AND TAKEN FROM DOCUMENTS OF PUBLIC RECORD; EXCEPT WHERE SPECIFICALLY STATED AS OPINION, WHICH NO RATIONAL PERSON WOULD EVER DISPUTE. ACCURACY OF FACT WAS THE #1 CONCERN OF THE AUTHOR.
You will come to an understanding of how the baseless prosecutions of Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, Jessie Misskelley and the 4 prosecutions of author Terry Cooksey for illegal speech were all the work and witch hunts of the same people. And backed up and provoked by some of Jonesboro's many christian extremists.
Written by a man who was the object of 4 witch hunts from 1983-1989 just prior to the witch hunt against the West Memphis 3. The author grew up in Jonesboro,Arkansas and knows most of those involved with these highly publicized murder cases in NE Arkansas; including those involved in the arrests, investigations, prosecutions and deceit in all these cases. The author is also the step-son of Syble Cooksey and was close friends with Ronnie and Juanita Shulths.
Once you get started reading this intense multiple murder mystery, you will have a hard time putting it down, as some have said this book is "like a John Grisham novel".
