In an on-camera interview with Today Making A Murderer filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos revealed a juror from the 2005 Steven Avery murder case reached out because they agreed with the show's sentiments.
"(The juror) told us that they believe Steven Avery was not proven guilty,'' Ricciardi said. "They believe Steven was framed by law enforcement and that he deserves a new trial, and if he receives a new trial, in their opinion it should take place far away from Wisconsin," the duo said.
There was also some compromising being done during deliberation.
"That was the actual word the juror used and went on to describe the jurors ultimately trading votes in the jury room and explicitly discussing, 'If you vote guilty on this count, I will vote not guilty on this count. So that was a significant revelation." Ricciardi added.
The juror in questions chose to stay anonymous for fear of personal safety.
"They told us really that they were afraid that if they held out for a mistrial that it would be easy to identify which juror had done that and that they were fearful for their own safety,'' Demos added.
If you don't have Netflix or aren't a fan of social media, the documentary series has taken on a life of it's own for its portrayal of the sheriff's department in Manitowoc County, Wisc. and the American justice system in general. Steven Avery did 18 years in the bing for a crime he didn't commit.
After his release he attempted to sue Manitowoc County for $36 million in damages and then, boom, he tortures, rapes, and murders somebody with his 16-year-old nephew.
Avery claims he was framed and his legal team did a good job in trying to prove that claim to no avail. He was sentenced to life in prison. Since the show's premiere two online petitions have popped up pleading for President Barack Obama to pardon them. All of Avery's appeals have been denied.
