From one of the greatest legal injustices of our time sprang
one of the most unlikely—and unforgettable—love stories. Damien Echols was just
eighteen years old when he was condemned to death for a crime he didn’t commit.
His case—that of the infamous “West Memphis Three”—gained notoriety after a
documentary, Paradise Lost, exposed
the biased nature of the trial and featured Echols as the precocious,
charming—and tragic—figure at its center. Lorri Davis was a landscape architect
living in New York City when she wandered into a showing of the film, and she
left forever changed. She, too, was from the South, accustomed to being the
outsider in a small town. She saw much of herself in Echols, understood how he
could easily have been swept up in a witch hunt, and she could not get him out
of her head. So she wrote him a letter—and when it arrived in Echols’ penitentiary cell in April 1996, hers were some of the first kind words of
support he heard.
