The first Tuesday Talk of 2016 & how do I plan on starting it out - with murder. Yup, murder. A lot of people are talking about the documentary Making a Murderer on Netflix.
This took place in Wisconsin & I remember the disappearance of Teresa Halbach. This also happened right outside where Jill grew up & during one of our trips, she did show me where the salvage yard was & such. So, this story is close to home.
Anywho, this has lead to some debate with some folks & such. I still have three episodes left as I'm waiting for Jill to finish it with her. The whole thing is just so mind blowing. Do I believe that Steven Avery did it? I'm not 100% sure, I would say that about 95% of me believes that he's innocent & was framed by these cops - how could one bleed from a cut on his finger but not leave fingerprints? How could poor Teresa's throat be slit without any blood being found? How is that the two main pieces of evidence were found by the very cops that seemed to be out to get him & after many times of the property being searched?
I do believe that his nephew, Branden Dassey, is innocent. He was a sixteen year old boy who was not all that smart, his story continually changed & he was interviewed THREE times without an attorney or Guardian ad Litem present. The part that really got me with him was when the cops were interviewing him, he asked if he would be getting out in time to hand in a project in 6th hour. He had no idea what was happening & I felt so bad for him.
The whole thing is messed up & I'm anxious to finish it up. Have you seen it? What are your thoughts? Do you believe that Avery is innocent?
