Drew Stepek Auction to Aid WM3 Defense Fund
Indie Horror novelist, Drew Stepek will be auctioning an autographed copy of his gold medal winning novel “Knuckle Supper” to raise money for the defense fund of Damien Echols (who is on death row), Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley, Jr.—also known as the West Memphis Three — who were convicted for murdering three elementary school children in 1994. Since the horrific crimes, DNA from the crime scene and victims was tested by Bode, the country's most trusted crime lab, and none of it matches these three unjustly imprisoned men. For three weeks starting December 5th, Judge David Laser will be holding an evidentiary hearing in Jonesboro, AR for the three men to review all post conviction evidence.
The auction will last for 18 days—from June 17th to July 5th —one day for each year the West Memphis Three have spent behind bars. June 3, 2011 has marked the 18th year anniversary that Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley Jr. have been behind bars for a crime they did not commit. 100% of the tax deductible winning bid will go to the Damien Echols Defense Fund which assists each of them with forensic testing and other legal expenses.
Auction is for horror fans 18 and over, please.
