This year Johnny Deep is trying to help others find freedom in “48 Hours Mystery” this Saturday. Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley were convicted of the gruesome May 1993 killing of three West Memphis, Arkansas, children. The convicted trio was dubbed the “West Memphis 3.” Others like Eddie Vedder and Depp’s former girlfriend Winona Ryder – believe the three accused were wrongly convicted. Even Rick Murray, the father of one of the victims, Christopher Byers, has expressed doubts about the guilt of the “West Memphis 3.”

Depp committed to this case and took a break from promoting his new film, “Alice in Wonderland” to tape the segment for “48 Hours Mystery.” Deep said, “I firmly believe Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley are totally innocent. It was a need for swift justice to placate the community.” Depp continues, “Damien Echols is on death row to be killed by lethal injection.”

We always love Johnny.

  1. my son was wrongly convicted of a crime. it should have never gone to trial. he was railroaded from day one. they alleged he sexually molested his girlfriend’s little girl. the mother knows he didn’t do it. they convicted him just what the little girl said, no evidence at all. they wouldn’t even let our side bring in our own pschycologist. please mr. depp , can you help my son. he has three little kids that desperately need him. he is doing 25 to life. if you need more information please e-mail me. thank you

  2. We are going through the same thing with our son, he was railroaded,into taking a plea, or the jugde was going to give him 24 -life. no evidence what so ever, cause he was not with the man that did it. He hs three children who has to go through life thinking there Dad is a murderer. We his parents and his family knows he is innocent. The town we live in is run by the drug dealers, the judge is is ex wifes best friends. Hisex even told our son durning there dvorce that he said if you ever get in front of him he will take care o you. He did!! There is alot about this case. alotof cover ups, alot we can prove , some is here say. But no one will listen or take us serious. We need Help to get our son out of prison and prove how dirty and crooked this little town really is. Be a good movie thats for sure. Sincerely, Leona Cox
