Jessie Misskelley Jr. is the least famous member of the West Memphis Three. He went to his family home in Crittenden County after his release Friday. Jason Baldwin and Damien Echols went to a party with Eddie Vedder and Natalie Maines at the Madison Hotel in Memphis. His contested confession was critical in the case from the start, which is one thing. He also simply never had the star power of his co-defendants. Nonetheless, he has a statement, too, for supporters, posted on the Free the WM3 blog.
Let me start off by saying that I am forever grateful and appreciative of every single one of you who has supported us now and in the past. I call each and everyone of you my friend. I am beginning a new life for myself and enjoying spending time with friends and loved ones. Meeting new family has brought so much joy to my heart as seeing those I haven’t seen in 18 years. I am taking time to relax and learning about things that have changed. Thanks again to everyone who has welcomed us back into society where we belong and have belonged for 18 years. This feeling is like no other I never imagined… walking out a free man and it’s because of all y’all that I kept the faith that one day I would get to start and continue my life again. Thanks you all I love each and every one of you! Have a good life, I know I sure will!
