Crime News That Matters

Who would have thought that we would see a favorable article about triple-connected child killer Damien Echols on Fox News? Maybe it’s because he murdered his victims during the Clinton Administration. Anyway, last week, Fox News gave Echols a write up because of some #truecrime convention that he attended.

Once again, the PR team for triple-convicted child killer Damien Echols has fleeced another major media outlet.

Over Easter weekend, a protest took place in Little Rock, Arkansas, against the state’s plan to execute eight inmates in ten days. The state is said to be doing this since one of the drugs they use in lethal injections is set to expire at the end of the month. Of course you can’t mention …

I guess it was inevitable that with all the talk of ‘Making a Murderer’ and its supposition that Steven Avery is innocent that the media would reach out to another convicted killer, Damien Echols, he of the West Memphis 3. Let’s see what the chief chalupa had to say… I was convicted of three counts …
