Week 12

Evidence and Critical Thinking | WM3

Looking at Evidence

This week we will continue our examination of the West Memphis Three, by furthering our discussion on West of Memphis and additional material on the case. While this case also deals with a potentially "false confession," and wrongful convictions/incarceration this case is a little difference. While much of the media has celebrated the release of Damien, Jason, and Jesse, we also have to remember—if they are innocent, then who is the real murder(s)?

I've given you a lot of material to review and read this week. Your goal is to look at the evidence and develop your own theory. Keep in mind, you can have an opinion—but it needs to be based on physical and logical evidence that you have researched.

Good luck detectives!
