The hit Netflix documentary Making A Murderer is back in the headlines after Steven Avery’s new legal team said they have a list of new suspects.
Avery was convicted of the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005 at his Wisconsin home. He is currently in jail serving a life sentence.
In January this year, high-profile American lawyer Kathleen Zellner took on Avery’s case, making both her progress and investigations an extremely public affair.
Zellner has now spoken to Newsweek with the claim that her team have identified new suspects in the case.
“We have a couple. I’d say there’s one, leading the pack by a lot. But I don’t want to scare him off, I don’t want him to run.” She said.
According to Zellner, the suspects are all men who allegedly knew the victim.
She also said that previous lawyers, Dean Strang and Jerry Buting spoiled Avery’s defence because they didn’t argue that Halbach’s mobile records allegedly show she left Avery’s property alive.
“It’s really hard to figure out how in the world did the defense not seize on this,” she said. “It would have created reasonable doubt.”
According to her social media, Zellner is currently speaking to new forensic experts in efforts to shed new light on the case.
Avery has already exhausted his appeal opportunities, a new trial can only be opened if new evidence is brought forward.
