Following his three-page letter to WISN 12 reporter Colleen Henry, Making A Murderer’s central subject Steven Avery released another statement addressed to his supporters on Friday.
Earlier this month, Avery filed a motion asking the court to exonerate him in the murder of 25-year-old photographer, Teresa Halbach.
In a handwritten letter released through Twitter, Avery is still sticking to his guns as he maintained he’s innocent for killing Halbach.
"To My Supporter's: I want Every Forensic Test Possible Done B/c I am Innocent," Avery wrote.
His lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, supported her client’s claim in an interview with Dateline NBC. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the Chicago-based lawyer believes that Avery could still be exonerated.
She cites that advancement in scientific testing can greatly help with her client’s murder conviction.
"Generally, since 2007, there have been significant advances in forensic testing. 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,” she said.
Making A Murderer is the Netflix series which quickly became a cultural phenomenon. To this end, fans are now wondering whether the hit docuseries could get a sophomore run.
Netflix boss Ted Sarandos addressed the potential second season in a report from Zapit, citing that Avery’s controversial case is “just unfolding”.
“The story is still unfolding, so we’ll certainly take a look at it,” he told reporters at the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour.
Co-creator Moira Demos also echoed her thoughts about the future of the show.
“This story is on-going. These cases are open. But it’s real life, so you don’t know what’s going to happen. We are ready to follow these — if there are significant developments, we will be there. And we’re looking at other stories as well,” she said.
Followers of the docuseries have yet to wait for further announcements if the streaming giant will pursue a second season.
