‘Making A Murderer’: Steven Avery’s sons give verdict on whether their dad is guilty

Twin boys Bill and Steven Avery Jr. also say the case against their father is "very shady"

Steven Avery’s twin sons have broken their silence on whether their father is guilty of Teresa Halbach’s murder.

Avery is the focus of Making A Murderer, the Netflix documentary which tells the story of his conviction for the murder of Halbach in 2005. Both Avery and nephew Brendan Dassey are serving life sentences for the murder, having been convicted in 2007.

Making A Murderer pays particular attention to perceived injustices in the case, causing many viewers to question the US justice system.

Now, during a new interview with Crime Watch, Bill and Steven Avery Jr. have spoken about the impact their father’s case has had on their lives.

When asked if they thought Avery Snr. was responsible for Halbach’s death, Bill states he doesn’t think his father committed the crime, while Steven Jr. says he has “no idea”.

He goes on to state that the “entire case was very shady. It’s clear that there was corruption. Him and Brendan deserve a re-trial.

“If they’re guilty, let them sit. But if they’re free, get them out. It’s been ten years now. They’ve wasted going on 30 years of his life if he’s innocent.”

The interview comes after Steven’s younger brother Earl revealed he believes his sibling is innocent.

Avery’s lawyer has since claimed to have new evidence she believes will exonerate her client, while Making A Murderer lawyer Ken Kratz is writing a book he says will prove Steven Avery’s guilt.
