Steven Avery's new defense attorney, Kathleen Zellner, is not making any effort in regards to her attempts to secure her client's release from prison. Making a killer Part 2 she shows that she is determined to find out who killed Teresa Halbach and will do everything possible to justify her case. And the specialist in wrongful convictions not only defends his client in court, but also defends him in social networks. Kathleen Zellner's tweets show how confident she is with the innocence of Steven Avery, which she maintained despite being found guilty of Halbach's murder in 2007, but has also made some enemies.
Zellner, who has been able to exonerate 19 of his clients, according to his website, has a reputation for almost unparalleled tenacity in the field of criminal defense. And he has taken that fighting spirit to his Twitter account, proving the innocence of his client in the court of public opinion, as well as through the appeals process. A large majority of her tweets focus on reaffirming her belief that Avery, who was convicted of the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach, could not have committed the crime. She warns critics and skeptics that after they finish their work, they have finished seeing them. Making a killer Part 2, There can be no doubt that Avery is innocent:
He also uses his Twitter account to claim that Avery's nephew, Brendan Dassey, who was also convicted of murder, is also innocent (Dassey has also maintained his innocence):
But Zellner has not only used Twitter to keep those who follow Avery's case updated, and to show support for his client. She also uses her public platform to launch some attacks against the opposition, and those she suspects could be guilty of the crime. In particular, Zellner created a split between the Avery and Dassey families by claiming that Dassey's brother, Bobby, and stepfather, Scott Tadych, could be responsible for Halbach's murder. Zellner arrived at this hypothesis after discovering new evidences that suggest that Bobby downloaded the pornographic images found in a computer of the Dassey family, according to Rolling Stone. (Bustle's request for a comment from Bobby Dassey's mother, Barb Tadych, about the ongoing case and its inclusion in the Netflix documentary was not immediately returned – Scott Tadych did not respond to Bustle's request for comment either).
Tadych has never been accused of anything in the case. According to the first part of the series, Tadych's alibi is his now stepson, Bobby Dassey. According to The Daily Beast, both men claim they saw each other while driving en route to a hunting trip. Bobby Dassey was never suspected by the police in the 2005 crime.
This has not prevented Zellner from claiming that the pair could be involved, both in the Netflix series and on Twitter. In a recent tweet, Zellner republishes a screenshot of something that Tadych had posted on Facebook, which says:
I would like to spend a minute of my time reading all these unpleasant emails and messages to thank Kathleen Zellner for all the false accusations against me and my stepson Bobby. And for ruining our lives, I think you're a f ** ken c ** t thank you and have a nice day.
Zellner's accusatory response says:
Zellner also used Twitter to criticize former district attorney Ken Kratz, who served as prosecutor in the cases of Avery and Dassey. During a question and answer session on Twitter using the hashtag #AskZellner, a Twitter user asked: "Did you read Ken Kratz's book?"Zellner replied," I did it. I'm looking forward to a non-fiction version. "
In another tweet, someone asked Zellner: "What is your opinion about the way in which
@Kenkratz Do you think he's still the star of the show? I want to say honestly that if I did such a bad job, they would not show my face everywhere! "She replied:" Actually We enjoyed the appearances of Mr. Kratz in MaM2. With his shirt soaked with sweat. He gives a new meaning to the term & # 39; Look at that body language & # 39; "
More recently, Zellner has turned to Twitter to express his frustrations with comments from Making a killer Part 2, many of which were less than bright. In a particularly scathing critique in Vanity Fair, The author writes that Zellner and Making a killer Part 2 "dramatic drama about integrity" and affirms that "Zellner knows exactly what she is doing, she offers reams of new data with the intention of opening holes in the original prosecutor's case, yes, but what she is really offering is a show , Y Making a murderer, With condemning credulity, he follows her every step of the way. "
Zellner opposes these critics by encouraging his many followers (the 279,000) to positively qualify the program:
Zellner also argues why the show is so important:
Social networks have been one of the most powerful tools in Zellner's arsenal, and are useful for a case that has fascinated the public since the first part of Making a killer was released in 2015. But so far, their efforts have not been successful in securing a new trial for Avery or exonerating him. More recently, Zellner's motion to grant Avery a new trial based on the discovery of the CD of pornographic images that Zellner claims to be exculpatory evidence was denied by the Circuit Court Judge of Sheboygan County in September 2018, as The Post Crescent.
But as indicated by Zellner's Twitter account, she is far from giving up:
Something tells me that Zellner is not a deserter. And as Avery's appeals process continues, she will be there to tweet updates every step of the way.
