Since the gripping Making A Murderer hit Netflix last month, viewers have been hooked on the cases of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, with practically everybody and their mother turning into amateur online sleuths.
As if all the evidence presented on the documentary itself wasn’t enough, various posts have since cropped up discussing what was left out of the show, from both the side of the defence and the prosecution, as well as various theories and the strange case of victim Teresa Halbach’s keys.
Then, Avery’s ex-fiancée Jodi Stachowski spoke to Nancy Grace and claimed that she now believes Avery did kill Halbach, saying he was a violent man who beat her, threatened to kill her, and forced her to lie to the documentary film crew.
Now, ABC affiliate WISN 12 News has reported that one of their journalists, Colleen Henry, wrote to Steven Avery asking him for his thoughts on the series.
And, if you were confused before, Avery’s handwritten reply is pretty wild, once again protesting his innocence, before alleging that Stachowski was actually paid off by the state of Wisconsin to do the interview and lie about the nature of their relationship.
According to WISN 12 News:
He’s maintained his innocence all this time. In the letter he said, ‘Here, put this on and I will talk to you, and do an investigation of the sheriff of Manitowoc County.’
Avery focused on his former girlfriend Jodi Stachowski. She professed his innocence in the documentary, but recently told Nancy Grace he was a monster who threatened her and her family, and she now believes he killed Halbach.
Avery suggested the state paid his former girlfriend to change her story writing, ‘How much money Jodi get to talk bad!’
With Averys handwritten note came a typed statement in which he wrote, ‘The real killer is still out there. Who is he stalking now? I am really innocent of this case and that is the truth!!! The truth will set me free!!!!!!!’
Avery said he’s willing to do an interview, but the Department of Corrections said it will not allow interviews.
The plot thickens…
