For many years I have been documenting the things that have happened to my family since Stevie was murdered in 1993. Many people have told me to deal with things, to get over death and move forward. It is much easier said than done. The journals I have kept during the past 18 years contain my deepest thoughts, my dreams, and most importantly, the struggles and trials I have suffered through the years. There have been tears, anger, guilt and grief. Injustice has been served to the victim’s family in a move to discredit the prosecution of those convicted of murder. Victims and families around the world should be outraged about the course of this case and the additional heartache and pain caused to the families of Stevie, Michael and Christopher. It is my sincere hope that other families can find peace in their darkest hours. It is with great anticipation that I have been working with an individual to compile these journals into a story that is begging to be told. The two of us anticipate, one way of the other, to publish this story in the near future.
Terry W. Hobbs
In 1993, three eight year old boys were brutally murdered and three teenagers were subsequently convicted and sentenced for this crime. The three convicted killers spent almost eighteen years in prison and, like most criminals, continued to proclaim their innocence. While in prison, these three teenagers gained an almost cult-like following of people worldwide, including celebrities, producers and attorneys; all of whom lobbied for the freedom of child killers.
In the quest for their freedom, fingers have been pointed toward variety of people who could have committed the murders of three cub scouts. One of those fingers is pointed toward Terry Hobbs, the step-father of Stevie Branch. This story is about the devastation the murder of a child has on a family and the relentless pursuit to frame Terry for the murders of Stevie Branch and his friends. The West Memphis Three, Who they really are: as told by Terry Hobbs.
