"West Memphis Three" Damien Echols appeared on a segment for HuffPost Live on Thursday to discuss his new book, "Life After Death" and the documentary “West of Memphis,” along with director Amy Berg.

Echols told host Ricky Camilleri that the conditions he underwent made him feel like he was going insane on a daily basis.

“I was in solitary confinement for almost a decade and you would see people that would just snap,” Echols said. “One day they seem normal, the next day they’re beating the walls until their fists are broken and bloody and screaming that the devil is in their cell.”
