Steven Avery has spoken out for the first time since the Netflix documentary ‘Making A Murderer’ premiered, expressing his belief Teresa Haibach’s real killer is still roaming the streets. Click through to read his statement!
Making a Murderer, the smash hit Netflix docu-series following the shocking murder case against Steven Avery, 53, has many believing that he was framed for the murder of Teresa Halbach — and Steven is backing that up in his first statement to the press since its premiere. Steven released a statement to news station WISN 12, when asked for comment on Making a Murderer. Click through to read what he wrote.
A reporter from WISN 12 wrote to Steven and asked him his thoughts on Making a Murderer. The convicted murderer eagerly wrote back, “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!!!!!!!” Steven said in his statement to the news station.
Steven has maintained his innocence since he was arrested for Teresa’s murder in 2005, and since Making a Murderer has aired, hundreds of thousands agree: they don’t believe that Steven committed the crime for which he’s serving life in prison without parole. Though the documentary largely implies that the police conspired against Steven to frame him for the murder, there are still some parts of the series that he didn’t like. He mused that the filmmakers paid off ex-fiancée Jodi Stachowski to speak out against him!
“How much money Jodi get to talk bad!” Steven said in his statement. Hopefully none! Jodi has now accused Steven of tying her to a bed, just like Brendan Dassey said Steven did to Teresa before sexually assaulting and murdering her. Jodi told TMZ that Steven had once “tied her to a bedpost with rope and tried to videotape it,” and he “wanted to have sex while she was restrained but she was so adamant he backed down;” he used “fear as a weapon.”
She said in an interview on January 13 that she believed he wasn’t innocent, and that she tried to kill herself to get away with him. What?! In Making a Murderer, they were positively lovey dovey, and had wonderful plans to get married. What happened? Steven expressed that he’d love to do an interview about the series, but the Department of Corrections explained that they do not allow prisoners to conduct interviews.
