The West Memphis 3 Project:

On May 5, 1993 three second graders dissappeared from their West Memphis, Ark. homes and the history of the small town on the Mississippi River was changed forever. Though three teenagers were arrested and convicted of the crime, many questioned the proof behind the state’s case. Almost 20 years later, the court case is still unfolding and the community is still searching for answers.

This website presents an updated look at what has become known as the “West Memphis 3” case. This year-long project looks at the new claims coming out in court as well as the legal questions concerning one of the most controversial cases in America.
