New York (ANI): Johnny Depp has asked for the reopening of the case
of the West Memphis Three - convicted as teenagers of beating three
8-year-olds to death in 1994. The 'Pirates of the Caribbean" star
appears on CBS's '48 Hours Mystery" to show support to Jason
Baldwin Jessie Misskelley and Damien Echols, who have been 16 years
"I firmly believe Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie
Misskelley are totally innocent. It was a need for swift justice to
placate the community. Damien Echols is on death row to be killed
by lethal injection," the New York Post quoted him as saying.
Depp joins Eddie Vedder, Metallica, Winona Ryder and the Dixie
Chicks, in supporting the boys. Baldwin and Echols are serving life
sentences, while Echolsis is on death sentence.
