Making A Murderer had already made Ken Kratz incredibly unpopular, but new evidence has seen the solicitor’s stock plummet even further.
Taking to Twitter, Steven Avery’s latest attorney has revealed a letter sent to her client by special prosecutor Kratz.
The letter, posted by Kathleen Zellner, seems to suggest that Kratz wanted to write a tell-all book on Avery’s behalf, and probably earn himself a tidy little payday in the process.
However, given the story Avery wants to tell isn’t the same one Kratz wants the world to hear, the prosecutor is forced to sign off like a stroppy teenager.
Check it out:
The letter reads:
RE: I’m Sorry That You Are Not Interested
Dear Mr. Avery,
I got your letter dated August 28, 2015, wherein you tell me that your visitor list is full, and ask if I checked out other fingerprints found on Teresa Halbach’s car, telling me that these people could have “set you up” for this.
I apologize for misunderstanding your letters from a couple of years ago, as I thought you were interested in being honest about what happened and finally telling the whole story to someone. Since I’m the person who probably knows more about your case than anyone else, I hoped that you would choose me to tell your story to.
Unfortunately, you only want to continue your nonsense about being set up. That’s too bad, because you had ONE opportunity to finally tell all the details, but now that will never happen.
By the way, the difference between you and famous convicted murderers from the past is they told their whole truthful story to someone, who then wrote a book about what actually happened and people got to understand both sides. I was willing to do that for you…but if you are going to continue to lie about what happened between you and Mrs. Halbach, I am not interested.
If you change your mind, and want to tell your honest story someday, please contact me.
The letter penned by Kratz was sent in 2015, before Making A Murderer aired, probably explaining his attempt to appeal to Avery’s ego.
Should Avery opt to write a book, he’ll probably not struggle for potential co-authors given the huge success of the hit Netflix show, thus making Kratz’s offer pretty redundant.
I didn’t think it was possible for the diagnosed narcissist Kratz to damage his credibility and integrity further, but I guess new evidence is always worth considering.
