CBS' to re-run WM3 episode

Posted By on Thu, Sep 1, 2011 at 4:11 PM

On Saturday, Sept. 10 at 9 p.m., CBS plans to re-air "48 Hours: A Cry for Innocence," their fairly extensive report on the West Memphis Three case. The episode — which first aired in February 2010 — features a rundown of the crime, Jessie Misskelley's confessions, the trials, and the fight to free the WM3. Included are interviews with Damien Echols, Lorri Davis, attorney Dan Stidham, WM3 supporter Johnny Depp, parents of victims and others.

If you don't want to wait until next week, you can also watch the episode online.

BONUS: Rolling Stone has a new article on the efforts (both financial and publicity-wise) of various members of the music community to help free the WM3. Here's the (literal) money quote from Metallica's Lars Ulrich: "The state gave them no compensation, so I think it falls upon our responsibility to help with that side of it."
