Making a Murderer: Steven Avery releases a letter from prison
The man at the center of 'Making a Murderer' is hoping for another chance at freedom
Steven Avery has a message for his public (or any member of law enforcement who may be willing to help with his appeal): he’s innocent.
On Jan. 29, Avery released a short but to-the-point letter about what needs to happen, now that his new attorney Kathleen T. Zellner is on the case.
Zellner also tweeted, “SA thrilled about chance of new forensic testing — like innocent men always are.”
Zellner, who took over Avery’s case in January with Wisconsin Tricia Bushnell, also tweeted, “One thing perps & planters have in common is leaving their signatures at the crime scene. Science always transcribes.”
Avery, the subject of the Netflix docuseries Making a Murderer, is in prison for life despite denying his role in the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005.
