Re: “Jason Baldwin Makes Appearance at Local Paradise Lost 3 Screening

Those of us who have researched this case know who the "real killer" is - and it's one person. John Mark Byers has named him. The three young men recently freed were guilty only of being poor and different. Jessie's statements are laughable, and, if a new trial had been granted (which it would have), the crack defense team would have made mincemeat of those statements - all of them!

BTW, the statement to his attorney was not a "confession." The attorney was questioning Jessie because the prosecution had said that he wanted to make a statement. When the attorney determined that the statement, if made, would be perjury, he stopped it. The official statement, made some nine days later, IMO only happened because the prosecution and the corrections officers continually harassed him and turned him against his own attorneys.

Some people who have posted here really need to read up on this case before they show their ignorance to the world. The three recently freed men are innocent, and a killer has been walking free for over 18 years. The saddest part of this situation is the State of Arkansas still has its head firmly planted in the sand and is not investigating the proper person. That makes me wonder why.
