West Memphis 3 Case

Eddie Vedder, Natalie Maines

Arrive at Court for Support

8/19/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

All three members of the West Memphis 3 arrived at the Craighead County Courthouse in Arkansas moments ago ... where at least TWO of the men are expected to be granted their release from prison.

Two huge celebrities have also arrived at the courthouse to support the men ... Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder.

The WM3 -- comprised of Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin -- were found guilty of killing 3 boy scouts in 1993. Misskelley and Baldwin were sentenced to life in prison. Echols was sentenced to death.

The case became a cause célèbre over the years after new evidence surfaced ... raising serious doubts as to whether the WM3 actually killed the three young boys.

The WM3 had maintained their innocence for years ... but according to local reports, two of the men are expected to "admit guilt" during today's hearing in exchange for their freedom.

Story developing ...

you've been playing too many violent video games. Lock youself alone in your bathroom for a week and see what you will admit to in order to get out. EIGHTEEN YEARS in prison--90% of people out there would admit to Mass Murder and Suicide just to get out for a week.

Max: She's not disgraceful and I hardly think showing up at a court case constitutes a bid for attention when all she has to do is get up on a stage and sing in her beautiful voice. She was helping three boys who were wrongly convicted, and nobody asked the media to poke their nose in. And Gerald Depardieu, the same ex actor who **** in the corridor of an airplane? That's a model American? Bob, Natale is no traitor, who do you think she is? Hitler? You moron. She was right about Bush. Good Lord, you lot. I feel ashamed you're all American
