Fans of Netflix's Stranger Things are just discovering the true crime story which may have inspired it.

Netflix Geeked suggested the new 'Hellfire Club' storyline in season four could've been a spin-off of the 1993 West Memphis Three - a group of teenagers falsely convicted of murder until 2011.

Fans have said that new character Eddie Munson bears a strong resemblance to one of the teenagers involved, Damien Echols.

The show sees Eddie accused of murder when he befriends the basketball team captain's girlfriend, Chrissy - but his fate is yet to be revealed.
