Anyone who has watched the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer will likely have a whole load of unanswered questions regarding Steven Avery and whether or not he is guilty.

Unfortunately, it seemed for a long while that Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey would remain in prison for the murder of Teresa Halbach for the remainder of their lives; only a convincing piece of new evidence would lead to a re-trial. 

Everything changed when Kathleen Zellner - an esteemed conviction lawyer - got on the case, fighting Avery’s corner.

Within days, she began work, updating everyone via Twitter how she was getting on and letting people know there was hope for the 53-year-old.

Now, in an interview with TheLipTV (via Uproxx), she has not only said there is new evidence that proves her client is not guilty, but she believes it is “fairly obvious” who the killer is. 

“It’s the evidence,” she explained to Allison Hope Wiener. “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.”

Making A Murderer- Where are they now?

According to TheLipTV, Zellner went even further, saying she “also intends to prove who actually killed Teresa Halbach. She asserted it is fairly obvious if you review the record of the criminal case.”

In recent news with regards the Making a Murderer case, Avery’s prosecutor Ken Kratz slammed the filmmakers for portraying him as a “villain”. He also attempted to unveil more evidence left out from the show that ‘proved’ Avery’s guilt.
