Steven Avery's new lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, is clearly excited to represent the star subject of the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer. Just check out her Twitter feed, where she's almost single-handedly keeping the hashtag #MakingAMurderer from fading into the land of already-been-binged television. But among her many retweets and legalese proclamations comes a legitimate web-gem, in the form of a handwritten letter from Steve Avery to all his ardent fans and admirers:
His handwriting's definitely better than Kanye's, but in case you can't make it out, here's what it says:
To my supporters: I want every forensic test possible done because I am innocent. Steven Avery.
At 16 words, Steven Avery has almost given his fans the equivalent of one half of an intro paragraph for one of the 16 articles Someecards has written about him. Seems a little light, considering all those who've spent hours and hours theorizing about ways he might be innocent, but writing was never the man's best subject.
In an interview with Dateline, Zellner, too, pinned hopes on new forensics. "Generally, since 2007, there have been significant advances in forensic testing," she told NBC's Andrea Canning. "Am I going to tell you exactly what it is? I am not. But it's been a long time. There was a lot of evidence that wasn't tested."
Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, are currently in jail for life for the murder of Teresa Halbach. If you're interested in a really fascinating theory of their innocence, read up on serial killer Edward Wayne Edwards.
