Woah, woah, woah! If you spent ten hours straight glued to your TV watching ‘Making A Murderer’ like we did, then you’ll be just as shocked as us to hear that Steven Avery’s prosecutor Ken Kratz actually believes there might be a reason for a retrial! See what it is, here.
If there’s one thing we know about Prosecutor Ken Kratz from watching Making A Murderer, it’s that he would do anything to see Steven Avery, 53, behind bars. Which is why we’re totally shocked to hear him say on Jan. 4 that there are circumstances under which he’d say Steve deserves a new trial! We’ll tell you what they are, here.
Whaaaaaaat. It doesn’t seem like our non-stop disbelief is going to stop now that we’re finished watching Making A Murderer, because there are still a lot of moving parts in this story that are just going to keep on shifting. The newest surprise? Steve’s prosecutor actually admitted to TMZ that there might, eventually, be a legitimate reason for a new trial of the convicted murderer.
Ken admitted that there might be one reason to try Steven again, and that’s if science improves to the point that there is a reliable test that could prove that blood found at the crime scene was planted. Um, our fingers are super crossed! It’s interesting that Ken would actually say that Steve might deserve a new trial, because in the film he says that even if evidence had been planted, he still thinks Steve’s guilty. We’re not so convinced.
Thanks to Ken, Steven was found guilty of the murder of young car photographer Teresa Halbach. However, the documentary Making A Murderer shows that there is some *very* questionable evidence that could mean that Steven was wrongly convicted or even framed by some shady law enforcement involving planted blood, moved bones, and a planted key. While we may never know, Ken rests easily knowing that the man he thinks is guilty is behind bars.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you think that Steven is guilty, or was he framed? Let us know in the comments below!
