Three years into their investigation, Jackson and Walsh contacted director Berg, whose 2006 priest-molestation documentary “Deliver Us from Evil” earned an Academy Award nomination. Berg signed on to direct “West of Memphis,” which traces the 18-year history of the case and features interviews with Jackson and many witnesses and experts he and Walsh worked with.
The film also builds a case that a stepfather of one of the murdered boys should be investigated.
Jackson said that without “Paradise Lost,” “Damien would be dead by now, so I do believe that film saved his life. And I’m hoping that our movie goes some way toward exoneration and catching the person that killed those three kids.”
Since his release, Echols has lived a nomadic life with Davis. He went to New Zealand to visit the set of Jackson and Walsh’s upcoming “Lord of the Rings” prequel “The Hobbit” and has been staying with other friends while trying to decide on his future.
“If I had to go through everything I did in the last 18 years to be with Lorri and to be in this situation, no, I wouldn’t change it,” Echols said. “I would go through it again if it meant being with Lorri.”
