On May 5, 1993, Steve Branch, Chris Byers and Michael Moore were reported missing by their parents.  They were last seen during the evening of May 5, riding two bicycles around the neighborhood.  On the afternoon of May 6, their bodies of were found in a shallow ditch located in a wooded area in their subdivision known as Robin Hood Hills.  During the weeks that followed, the West Memphis Police Department received tips about several suspects, including multiple tips implicating Damien Echols, a local teenager who was known to brag about his occult practices, including blood drinking, membership in a cult and graduation to human sacrifice.  On June 3, 1993, detectives questioned Jessie Miskelley, a 17-year old associate of Echols.  After less than five hours, Miskelley gave a statement that implicated himself, Echols and another teenager, Jason Baldwin.  In 2011, four months before a hearing to determine whether the three would be granted new trials based on their exculpatory evidence claims, attorneys for Echols came up with a novel legal maneuver to secure their clients’ release from prison.  On August 19, 2011, the three entered Alford pleas, which acknowledged that the state possessed sufficient evidence to convict them if new trials were granted.  Join Michael Carnahan and Lisa O’Brien on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. CDT, for an interview with Roberta Glass, of Roberta Glass True Crime Report and Meredith Elizabeth.  We’ll talk about the recent Oxygen and ID specials about the case, the innocence narrative and evidence and information overlooked in the programs.  We’re a live show and calls are always welcome at (347) 989-1171.
