Steven Avery’s Lawyer Says She Has New Evidence That Proves He Is Innocent

Kiara Keane

Steven Avery’s lawyer Kathleen Zellner has just made a fairly dramatic new claim about his innocence.

The lawyer features in Making A Murderer season two which follows the developments of the case since the Netflix series first aired back in 2015 and became a global phenomenon.

Zellner has been focusing on overturning Avery’s conviction for Teresa Halbach’s murder and now says that she has new evidence which was not featured on the show that could clear his name.

Are you ready for this emotional rollercoaster?

In a series of tweets, Zellner wrote, ‘Making a Murderer watchers, listen up. I’m going to walk you through what I’ve learned through my investigation that you didn’t see in the show.

‘1 . On 10/31/05, Scott Tadych visited Bobby at the Avery salvage yard (ASY) around noon.

‘2. After Teresa (TH) called the Dassey landline for directions, our suspect contacted her back with the Dassey address.

‘3. Teresa arrived at the ASY around 2:30–2:31 p.m. on 10/31/05. Only Bobby and Steven saw her. After completing her photo assignment, she left & turned West on Hwy 147 around 2:38 p.m. Our suspect followed her. Steven was in his trailer.

‘4. Our suspect gets TH to pull over. She opened her car’s rear cargo door to retrieve her camera, was knocked to the ground and struck with an object.

‘5. TH was put in the rear cargo area of the RAV4 and driven back to ASY

‘6. TH’s RAV4 was spotted leaving the ASY with an unknown driver at 3:45 p.m.

‘7. RAV4 was left by the old dam West of Mishicot on 10/31/05.

‘9. Recent investigation shows the RAV4 battery died, so it was replaced in order to move the RAV4 to the ASY.

‘10. TH’s body was burned in a burn barrel. Dassey burn barrel had human bones.

‘11. 60% of bones and 31 teeth missing

‘12. A witness smelled horrible odour of something burning in Manitowoc County gravel pit the evening of 10/31/05.

‘13. The Dassey garage was never luminoled or DNA tested. Bobby hung a deer in the Dassey garage on 11/4/05.

‘14. Sikikey note—Body burned at smelter 11/4/05, 3 a.m. Tadych worked the night shift at a smelter facility. His nickname: Skinny.

‘15. TH’s electronics were not burned in Steven’s burn barrel; they were burned in Dassey burn barrel.

‘16. Suspect knew Steven’s finger re-bled on 11/3/05 because he observed it.

‘17. Suspect had access to Steven’s trailer to remove blood from the sink.

‘18. Only our suspect knew the blood in the sink was Steven’s and not TH’s (this rules out the police).

‘19. Suspect planted blood in RAV4, bones in Steven’s burn pit, and TH’s electronics in Steven’s burn barrel.

‘In conclusion, the killer is the person who had the access and opportunity to plant Steven Avery’s fresh blood in Teresa Halbach’s car.’
