LITTLE ROCK, AR (WMC-TV) - A new West Memphis 3 defense team of experts is searching for a man the believe may hold the key to what happened nearly 16 years ago, when three boys were murdered.
If you have followed the case over the years, you may remember talk of a bleeding man at a West Memphis restaurant, Bojangles, seen soon after the murders of the three boys in Robin Hood Park.
That is one aspect of the case two men from New York plan to focus on hoping to free The West Memphis Three.
The two men have started a tip line hoping to bring in new information. The men - Jay Salpeter, a former New York City detective, along with a public advocate - helped free a man wrongfully accused of killing his parents.
Salpeter belives the man in the restaurant could be key to their cause.
"The night of the incident, it's documentated, that there was a black man who might be a witness to the crime," Salpeter said. "This man ran into Bojangles restaurant. He was injured. I need him to come forward. I need someone who knows him to come forward."
Bojangles restaurant was a mile from where the bodies of the three boys were discovered. Evidence gathered from the restaurant was lost.
Damien Echols is on death row for the murders, while Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelly were also convicted in the case.
The men from New York say a tip helped them free the man convicted of killing his parents.
