The Paradise Lost movies are one sided representations of the case from the side of the defense. Misskelley (one of the 3) confessed three different times to the detectives, once to the police and once to his own lawyers. Misskelley confessed five times in all. He also told two other people about the crime before he was arrested.
Echols went around bragging he committed the crimes to at least three different people after the crimes were committed. Baldwin (one of the 3) told another person he committed the crimes. The person he told passed a lie detector test about the truth of this. All of the West Memphis three had failed alibis. Echols was seen in muddy clothes near the crime scene.
Echols had a history of threats of violence, violence, psychiatric treatment and psychotic behavior. His reported actions included brutally killing a dog, starting fires at his school, threatening to kill his teachers and parents and stating he liked to drink blood. See court documents exhibit 500 for evidence of all this.
Echols' stated under cross-examination that he was interested in the occult. Echols' journal contained morbid images and references to dead children.
