Damien Echols spent 18 years in jail for a crime he says he didn’t
commit. However, life on the outside isn’t as easy as most would expect.
Echols, who along with two others was convicted for the murders of
three boys, tells CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH Charles Osgood he lives in fear.
“I can’t even describe what the fear is or where it comes from,” Echols tells 48 HOURS MYSTERY correspondent Erin Moriarty in an interview airing this weekend on CBS SUNDAY MORNING. “It’s just like this free-floating anxiety. It’s what – literally my life has become – is that I’ve been injected into this whole new world. And I’m having to learn everything.”
Moriarty talks with Damien Echols and his wife Lorri, whom he met and
married in prison, about his stay in jail, life after being released,
and his new book, Life after Death.
Moriarty’s full interview with Echols will air Sept. 16 on CBS SUNDAY MORNING (9:00-10:30 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
