New Twists in Steven Avery Case

(Steven Avery, Brendan Dassey)

Steven Avery was sentenced to life in prison for the rape and murder of Teresa Halbach, 25, in Wisconsin in 2005. His nephew Brendan Dassey was also convicted but has recently had this overturned and is currently waiting in prison for judges to rule on the appeal. Avery’s arrest for Teresa’s murder followed his release from prison after being wrongfully convected for rape. After this release, Avery had a lawsuit pending against officers in the Manitowoc County.

Avery’s lawyer has submitted a new document as part of his appeal, and its a whopper. This document points the finger at Teresa’s ex-boyfriend Ryan Hillegas being the one who killed her. The report claims that: he was physically abusive to Teresa, he lied to the police during the investigation, he had injuries to his hands including scratches, he gave a fake name to law enforcement, he had unrestricted access to Avery’s property.

There’s also some blame laid on Teresa, as the document says Halbach was at an elevated risk of violence because she was involved in nude photography and had affairs with a married man, and one of her ex-boyfriend’s friends.

Well everyone, what do you think? I personally have always thought Avery was guilty. If you want more information on why people think he’s guilty, check out this link: (not a big Reddit fan, but they do thoroughly discuss all evidence that points to Avery’s guilt)
