As one of the West Memphis Three, Damien Echols spent nearly two decades on death row for the murders of three Arkansas Cub Scouts in 1993, a crime he says he didn't commit. Last year, due to a lack of evidence, the men were released amid a flood of publicity.
Now 37, Echols has written Life After Death, a memoir that details the horrors of prison life. He has become something of a celebrity. Along with Lord of the Rings director, Peter Jackson, and others, Echols produced West of Memphis, a documentary about the case.
