It's been more than 14 years since three little boys from West Memphis were brutally murdered. New evidence has put their death back in the headlines and the victims families at odds.

The 1993 murders of three little boys from West Memphis will forever link the names John Mark Byers and Todd Moore.

Their sons Christopher Byers and Michael Moore are two of the murder victims.

But a West Memphis police report filed Thursday links the two men in another way. Moore filed a criminal complaint claiming Byers left him a phone message Thursday threatening to "stomp a mud hole in him" and "beat the hell out of him."

"Unfortunately the choice of his words may have been a little over the top, but as we all know John Mark Byers is pretty passionate when it comes to his words," Byers' attorney Clayborn Ferguson said.

Byers attorney says his client lashed out after Moore posted rumors on the internet, accusing Byers of stealing funds that belonged to the murder victims families.

The feud may be fueled by recent DNA tests that revealed there was no evidence at the crime scene incriminating the West Memphis Three, Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley.

In an interview last month Byers said the new evidence makes him question who murdered his son.

The change of heart put Byers at odds with some of the other murder victims families. Families that continue to grow farther apart more than 14 years after the horrific crime that brought them together.
