Two decades after the bodies of three 8-year-old Cub Scouts were found in West Memphis, Ark., Damien Echols told FOX13 News in an interview he did not kill them.
Echols was at the time one of three teenagers convicted for the murders of boys. Echols spent 17 years on death row in Arkansas and was scheduled to die for a murder that he may not have committed.
He and his co-defendants Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley were released in 2011 after pleading guilty to an Alford plea.
In an interview Tuesday with FOX13 News Good Morning Memphis, Echols discusses his book "Life After Death" and if DNA testing was around in the early 1990s would it have changed the circumstances around the murder mystery.
