A series of free screenings is set in Arkansas and Tennessee for “West of Memphis,” the new documentary on the West Memphis Three murder case.
The movie contains new information aimed at further establishing the innocence of the three men originally convicted in the slaying of three children in 1993 and suggesting other avenues of investigation. A $200,000 reward has been offered for information leading to arrests and convictions. For now, the case is officially closed. A plea bargain in which the original defendants pleaded guilty while asserting innocence led to their release from prison last year.
The movie will be shown free in Little Rock, Hot Springs, Jonesboro, Blytheville and Mountain Home. Full details follow on the jump. The movie is scheduled for commercial release in Decmeber.
