I am posting this because people should know what the hell is going on.
Chris Hutchings lived with Amanda for awhile this is his account of what went down while filming "West Memphis" this was also verified by Terry.
You can kiss my ass what Terry did or didn't do has nothing to do with Mandy. When she was here I KEPT HER OFF DRUGS! Amy Berg and her stupid documentary film crew picked her up and wanted to film her doing drugs....That's why Amy is facing charges look it up....And yeah it was me that turned her in to I don't mind tellin ya!
You will not find the article, but I have it..
When someone is murdered there is more than one victim. Families, friends, and even the community the person lived in are forever haunted by the event.
In 1993, three 8-year old boys were murdered in West Memphis, Arkansas and the area has never been the same. Residents living in the region will sometimes say there is a dark cloud that still looms, refusing to dissipate. Perhaps the reason is because justice has never truly been served. Though three men – Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley – were convicted of the murders in 1994, recent DNA results and other evidence suggest someone else was responsible for the crimes. This information has earned the men an evidentiary hearing that is scheduled to be heard at the end of this year in December.
Over the years, much attention has been brought to this case in the form of documentaries, news articles, fundraising benefits, and books. A number of documentary films are in production at this time as well. One such film is directed by a filmmaker, Amy Berg, who is known for her critically acclaimed production Deliver us from Evil. Berg has been working on a documentary covering the murders and subsequent convictions of three teenagers in West Memphis for almost a year.
Berg’s recent focus has been members of the Hobbs family who were related to one of the victims, Stevie Branch. Amanda Hobbs was four years old when her brother was murdered, hog-tied, and left nude in a ditch inside what was known to the locals as Robin Hood Hills woods. Her father, Terry Hobbs, was Stevie’s stepfather. Hobbs came under media scrutiny in 2007 when DNA results showed that a hair found in the ligature of one of the victims, Michael Moore, was consistent with his own. Hobbs has maintained that he did not see Stevie the day he was murdered.
Berg’s documentary is an example of the moral and ethical lines that filmmakers must consider when completing their projects. Though she has expressed to various family members of the victims, such as Pam Hobbs, that her intention is to facilitate justice for the boys who were murdered, the men incarcerated, and the families who are seeking answers, Berg’s recent actions suggest a more sinister motive at play. An example of this is when Sheila Hicks Muse, Stevie’s aunt, informed various individuals that she had acquired provocative photographs of Amanda Hobbs as a teenager with what appeared to be Terry Hobbs. She said she was uncertain as to whether it was Terry Hobbs and was advised that she should have to photos developed independently to confirm her suspicions. She claimed that she would turn the photos over to the Echols defense due to their content if Hobbs was in the pictures.
The photos were not developed independently or turned over to the defense, however. Muse contacted Berg and the filmmaker stated that she would be interested in purchasing the photographs. Muse then had photographs developed at a local Wal-Mart and claims the pictures did not contain the images she thought they did. The sale did take place but there is no way to confirm the content of the pictures. Pam Hobbs was outraged to learn of the impending sale on March 29 when she was informed that her sister was considering selling the photographs.
I am telling this story because I am the person who told Pam that Sheila had something to sell to Amy Berg. This is not the first time it has come to my attention that Berg has intended to do something, or has actually done something, to exploit Amanda Hobbs. The reason I am stating this publicly is because Sheila Muse made a statement on the Wm3 Blackboard that she will no longer be seeking justice for the case or for Stevie because of what I did. I responded to her statement on the forum where she wrote this, but it was removed. I made the right decision and if I was faced with it again I would make the same choice. Sheila told several people that she had negatives of photographs that contained provocative images of her niece. She was given advice by at least two people about what she should do with them. The last person who should have been informed of this was Amy Berg. It is never acceptable to exploit a child and I will never stand by and allow it to happen. This is my side.
If you notice in this video you will see the IV taped in her hand from being in ICU from an overdose. Amamda was dropped off at my house after Amy let her overdose for her stupid film. Me and others put a stop to it and like I said Amy knows where to find me.
Please pray for Mandy and Amy I know you are reading this you know where I live. You basically put a needle in her arm and I ain't gonna let it go so come on by bring channel 8 and let me tell them how low you sunk! I ain't scared of NOBODY I ain't the pope and I've never slapped a woman, but I would be tempted after what you pulled..
