In 2016 Netflix's Making a Murderer captivated the country, the tragic murder in 2005 of Teresa Halbach, and the alleged false imprisonment of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey has still been a hot topic 3 years after the show's debut..
It seemed all options were exhausted in exonerating Avery and Dassey, with Avery's lawyer even offering $100,000 for the arrest and conviction of Halbach's real killer.
Just as it was looking like all hope was lost, this bomb was dropped.
An inmate in Wisconsin allegedly confessed to the 2005 murder of Halbach, to the film crew of Convicting a Murderer which is a docu-series getting ready to air soon.
Convicting a Murderer director Shawn Rech says the prisoner, who will not be named until law enforcement in Wisconsin looks into the alleged confession , confessed to his crew while filming the documentary series.
“We haven’t confirmed the legitimacy of the confession, but seeing as it was given by a notable convicted murderer from Wisconsin, we feel responsible to deliver any and all possible evidence to law enforcement and legal teams,” he told Newsweek. “Having been in production for 20 months, we’ve uncovered an unfathomable amount of information and evidence that is leading us to the truth. Our investigation does not end here.”
