As first seen in Netflix's documentary series Making a Murderer, nothing is ever really clear in the case surrounding Steven Avery. Nevertheless, Avery's lawyer, Kathleen Zeller, is more convinced than ever that her client was wrongfully convicted—for a second time.
After spending 18 years in jail for a rape crime he was eventually exonerated for, Avery was arrested again for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. Zellner, who spoke up late last month, asserts that she's already found evidence that will exonerate her client, spoke to TheLipTV explaining that it is "fairly obvious" who actually killed Halbach. She then took to Twitter on Friday where she boldly asserted that "the inevitable is coming."
She told TheLipTV a week ago:
"It’s the evidence. In having had a number of these cases, it has the signature of a wrongful conviction case. They only focused on him. They did not look at a lot of other suspects, certainly some very key people they should have been looking at. There was a very poor investigation done of the victim’s background, who she was involved with, the circumstances of her life. It had all of the hallmarks of a wrongful conviction case."
Zellner, however, stated nothing about Brendan Dassey, Avery's nephew who was convicted for assisting his uncle with the murder. Last week journalist Dan O'Donnell, who covered Avery's second trial and has been a vocal critique against Making a Murderer, claimed that Dassey had been sexually assaulted by his uncle. This certainly complicates things further.
Below are some of Zellner's tweets about how Avery is doing and the state of her case.
Killer would not reduce body to bone fragments to destroy evidence but leave car intact w/his blood. #MakingAMurderer— Kathleen Zellner (@ZellnerLaw) February 19, 2016
