Not A Safe Space

Steven Avery’s Dumbass Supporters Have Some Explaining to Do

making a murdererAfter the airing of the documentary, “Making a Murderer” about the Teresa Halbach murder,  thousands of people signed petitions demanding Steven Avery, and his 16 yr old mentally deficient nephew, Brendan Dassey get a new trial. I’m giving these misguided people the benefit of the doubt and assuming they just didn’t know all the evidence. To be fair, the film was so biased in Avery’s favor—making it look like he was framed—it should be called a mockumentary.

Steven Avery is not someone who should be free in society.

If Avery is granted a new trial, he will be set free on bail, and women are going to die. If he were to be found not guilty at a new trial by some miscarriage of justice and released, women are going to die.

Everyone needs to stop this love fest for a twisted, rapist-murderer.

Steven Avery was wrongly convicted of rape in 1985 and spent 18 years in prison prior to being convicted of the murder of Teresa Halbach. That he was wrongly convicted once, doesn’t mean it happened again. I’ve watched every news program about this case, watched the interrogations, and seen interviews with those closest to the case. Here are the main pieces of evidence that got Avery and his nephew, Dassey convicted:

  1. Avery has a history of violence against women. This from numerous police reports of DV and accounts of women he was involved with. He pulled a shotgun on his female cousin after ramming her car off the road. He was mad because she’d said something he didn’t like. His supporters claim the gun “wasn’t loaded”, as if that makes it somehow okay. (This is how he ended up in line-up for the 1985 rape case. He’d been arrested for attacking his cousin and while in it he got ID’d as a rapist.)
  2. Avery doused a cat with gas, him in a fire, then enjoyed watching the poor thing burn alive.
  3. Avery was wrongly convicted of rape and spent 18 years in prison. He told people he hated women because of this and felt they “owed” him.
  4. The last place Teresa was known to have been was Avery’s junk yard (and where he lived with members of his family) to photograph his sister-in-law’s van for AutoTrader magazine. She left a phone message to Steven asking him to call her about a time to come out. She was never seen again after she went there.
  5. Her cell phone LAST pinged at the cell tower closest to Avery’s property
  6. Despite claiming he never saw her, we know Avery spoke to Teresa because she was seen by a busload of children photographing the red van. (He had to point out to her which vehicle to take photos of, therefore he’s lying about not seeing her.)
  7. Her burned body, cell phone, camera, part of her jeans, and her RAV were found on Avery’s property.
  8. Her body and possessions were found in two separate places, a barrel and a burn pit.
  9. Burned tires matching those on Avery’s property were intertwined with Teresa’s body indicating the body had been burned there.
  10. Family testified to seeing Avery sitting at the fire pit that night stoking the fires that were burning Teresa’s body.
  11. Her DNA is on a bullet found in the garage. It came from Avery’s gun. There is a bullet hole in her skull.
  12. Her RAV key was found in Avery’s bedroom with her DNA on it.
  13. Teresa’s blood and Avery’s blood were mixed in her RAV.
  14. Avery’s blood is not mixed with EDTA so it didn’t come from the vial of his blood kept in police storage from the rape case back in 1985. The FBI ran this test at the insistence of the defense.
  15. Avery’s sweat is found under the hood of her RAV from where he disconnected her battery.
  16. Avery had a fresh, deep cut on his finger that would explain his blood in her RAV. It’s on his right hand. In the RAV you can see a swipe of his blood to the right of the steering wheel on the dashboard, right where it would be if he bumped it. His blood is found in six separate locations.
  17. In a four hour confession, 15-year-old Brendan Dassey described the murder scene with Avery directing him to rape and stab Teresa while she screamed and begged for her life. His description is graphic, including how they moved her with her arms and legs tied from the bedroom into the garage to finish her off. He also describes taking Teresa’s body to the van and then removing it because they didn’t know what to do with her.

    Brendan Dassy

    Brendan’s confession matches the forensic evidence exactly.

  19. There are several separate interviews with Dassey. In the most vital one mentioned in #15 above,  he is not being led, does not appear forced. He hangs his head and talks. It’s clear he’s deeply ashamed. Is he without a lawyer during the interrogation? Yes, but his mother gave her permission. It’s not illegal for police to question you without a lawyer. As long as the parents give permission, it’s legal for police to question a minor.
  20. Teresa had been out to the property before and Avery had a thing for her. Brendan admitted he and Avery planned the murder of Teresa for several days prior.
  21. Brendan says he and Avery cleaned up the crime scene in the garage with bleach.
  22. Brendan’s own mother testified that his pants that day had bleach stains on them.
  23. Brendan’s confession wasn’t used at trial against Steven Avery for those of you who discount it as “coerced”.
  24. Brendan later recants his confession claiming he got the murder scene description from the book “Kiss the Girls”. He’s lying. The scene he described is not in there. By deductive reasoning, that means he got the murder scene from actually being there. Otherwise, he would have named the book/movie he did get it from.
  25. Since they had days to plan the murder, the lack of blood at the scene just means they were prepared with bleach and tarps.
  26. Avery Former fiancée Jodi Stachowski, featured in the documentary, recently called Avery “a monster” and claimed she didn’t say anything bad about him in the film because she was afraid he would kill her. She said Avery had tied her to the bed exactly as Brendan described him doing to Teresa. She believes Avery is guilty.

This is a mountain of evidence, and I’m sure I missed something.

There is zero evidence that points to anyone but Steve Avery.

In order to think Avery is wrongly convicted because of police misconduct,  you’d have to be able to answer some preposterous questions:

  • Where did police get Teresa’s body to plant on Avery’s property?
  • Did police stumble upon Teresa dead somewhere and decide, “Oh, great, we’ve got a dead woman here, let’s use her to frame Steve Avery”?
  • Or did police murder Teresa? Then plant her?
  • But where did they kill her? Her cell phone last pinged at the Averys, how did they make that happen? Since she was never seen again after going to the Averys, how did the police kill her there?
  • Where did police burn her body?
  • Did they burn her body on the Avery property, and the Averys didn’t notice police standing around a blazing fire with a body in it, and burning stuff in a barrel?
  • So police burned her body somewhere else, like with the help of a funeral director. Then they took her ashes and bone bits and scattered them all over the Avery property—and didn’t lose one of her 270 bones—and no one from the Avery family noticed police dumping ashes all over? Keep in mind they all live on the property in trailers close to each other.
  • How did police get her RAV on Avery’s property with both her blood and Avery’s in it—and no one noticed it being driven there parked and covered up with junk?
  • How did police manage to get her DNA on a bullet that happened to come from Avery’s gun, and it matched the bullet hole in her skull?
  • Did anyone in law enforcement confess to planting evidence?
  • Is there any evidence the police planted evidence?
Steve Avery

Yeah, he looks like an innocent man wrongly convicted of the torture, rape and murder of a young woman, doesn’t he?

Teresa Halbach

Teresa next to her RAV

The filmmakers, Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi behaved irresponsibly in creating this piece of utter garbage. Somewhere lost in all this nauseating support for a scumbag murderer is his victim. Let’s not forget a 25 yr old woman is dead, who by all accounts was a nice, decent person. Teresa Halbach deserves better than this.

UPDATE 1/18/16:  Avery’s new attorney, Kathleen Zellner has filed a petition to release Avery from prison while awaiting his appeal. So when he gets out and kills again, Zellner needs to go to prison with him.

UPDATE 11/16/16: Brendan Dassey has been ordered released from prison as his conviction was overturned due to his being a minor and not having an attorney present during questioning, but a judge overruled the release. Brendan is still in the slammer.  Thank god. Otherwise, how knows how many young women he would rape and murder.

  1. You are as stupid as they come. I bet you would have sat on the jury at the Salem witch trials too! You are exactly the type of person this country needs to dispose of….go eat a McDouble and fries! If you cant see the corruptness and holes in this case you are as blind as Ray Charles! what this article says blatantly about you is that you refuse to face the truth and its the TRUTHTHATWILLSETTHEMFREE!!!!!!!!!!!

    • There may be incompetence, even corruption in this case, but that doesn’t make Avery not guilty. You need to calm down and stop screaming. This isn’t about you. It’s about a dead young woman.

  2. I’ll add my two cents if that’s okay.

    Regarding #9
    If Steven and Brendan cleaned the garage with bleach so meticulously I find it hard to believe they would leave a piece of evidence as substantial as a bloody bullet fragment lying around. Also, in the photos police took during the search of the Avery property there are drops of deer blood on the floor of the garage, therefore squashing the claim that they bleached the garage. As for the bullet fragment… a gun expert from the Wisconsin State Crime Lab stated that he could not conclusively tie the bullet to Steven’s gun, only that it came from a .22 rifle.

    Regarding #10
    Are you absolutely positive it was Theresa’s RAV 4 key? If it was her key then her dna would be all over it. Only Steven’s dna was found on the key which brought me to one of two conclusions. One, the key was scrubbed and then sprinkled with Steven’s dna and planted. Two, It’s not Theresa’s key.

    Regarding #12
    It was actually the prosecution (Ken Kratz to be exact) that prompted the EDTA test performed by the FBI.

    Regarding #13
    That was determined to be inconclusive due to the fact that the investigator had searched Steven’s vehicle prior to searching Theresa’s vehicle and did not change his gloves before searching her vehicle, therefore possibly transferring Steven’s dna to Theresa’s vehicle.

    Regarding #14
    If the blood in Theresa’s car came from Steven, that would mean that Steven was careless. Don’t you find it strange that the car is completely void of Steven’s fingerprints? If someone is careless about leaving their blood in a car that is part of a crime they would probably be careless about leaving their fingerprints as well. I doesn’t add up.

    Regarding #1
    Okay, so as the story goes…Theresa is in Steven’s bed naked. Her legs and hands shackled to the bed. Steven prompts Brendan to cut off Theresa’s hair, then rape her, then slit her throat. She doesn’t die so she is taken to the garage and shot and her body then burned. That paints an extremely gruesome scene, however, there was no dna evidence found in Steven’s bedroom. No hair or rope fibers, no blood, no sweat, no semen. There was dna from Steven and another unknown person found on the shackles, however, no dna from Theresa was found. I must point out again that if Steven was careless enough to leave his blood in Theresa’s car then I see no way that he could scrub that bedroom so meticulously as to leave zero dna evidence.

    Regarding #24
    Jodi was paid by Nancy Grace ( Really? Nancy Grace?) for the interview. That speaks volumes. Jodi claims she is terrified of Steven. So terrified in fact that she ingested rat poison to get away from him. My burning question is why, if she is so scared of him, would she move a mere 45 miles away from him? In my opinion Jodi was waiting for a 36 million dollar pay day. When that went away, so did she.

    Also, concerning Brendan. His confession was grossly contaminated. He was spoon fed a confession by detectives that took full advantage of his psychological deficits and was further exacerbated by Len Kachinsky, his useless court appointed defense attorney who was basically working for the prosecution using Brendan’s confession as the smoking gun to convict Avery. He had his private investigator O’Kelly strong arm a written confession out of Brendan and then once he gets it, he proceeds to immediately send Brendan to Fassbender and Weigert in the hopes of keeping the planted falsehood fresh in his mind. He threw that poor kid to the wolves and left him to fend for himself when he didn’t have the capacity to do so. He was clearly denied his 14th amendment right of due process. This entire case is full of holes and reeks of pervasive corruption and inappropriateness dating all the way back to 1985 when Steven was convicted of sexual assault despite the lack of real tangible evidence and multiple solid alibis.
    I try to make it a habit of using good old fashioned logic when trying to solve a mystery. So based on the lack of any real solid physical evidence in Steven’s bedroom, in the garage, the questionable integrity of the blood in the RAV 4 (I’m still waiting for a solid EDTA test to conclusively prove whether there was an anticoagulant in Steven’s blood sample because that is crucial) and the suspicious actions of Colborn, Lenk, Sheriff Peterson, Theresa’s ex, Ryan Hillegas, and her half brother Mike I conclude that
    there is more than enough reasonable doubt for me call them innocent.

    • Tifannie, You’re twisting yourself into a pretzel trying to make Avery not be guilty.

      #9 You are assuming criminals are perfect in the commission of their murders. That they cleaned up some evidence and not other evidence is how Avery got convicted. Why would he leave her RAV on his property? Seems pretty stupid, yet there it was. Why is her burned body right outside his trailer? Seems pretty stupid of him. I could go on. We also have no idea how much blood there was. Dassey testified to stabbing her, she could have had internal bleeding, and not bled much outside her body to clean up. Hello.
      #10 Avery wasn’t convicted on her key. He was convicted on the totality of evidence. We could discount that key as “suspect” and he’d still be guilty.
      #12 Kratz asked for the EDTA test because the defense claimed Avery’s blood was planted from a tube from the 1985 rape case.
      #13 You have no proof the investigator contaminated the under the hood of her car with Avery’s DNA. You are speculating.
      #14 So Avery was careless. He had just killed a woman and he isn’t the brightest bulb. The cut on his right hand matches the smear to the right of the steering wheel. So clever of police to match that up, don’t you think, without them knowing he had the cut?
      #24 So if someone moves “only” 45 miles away from someone that means they aren’t scared of them? You are kidding, right?

      Brendan was NOT spoon fed by detectives. Show me the videotape. I saw the videotape of his confession. He hangs his head and just talks and he isn’t smart enough to memorize all that detail if it were given to him. There is no coercion, no leading questions. It is also not illegal to question a minor without a lawyer, if the parents agree. Said that already.

      You aren’t using “good old fashioned logic” in this case, because if you did, you’d see that the only possible scenario is that Avery killed her. Otherwise, the police either 1) killed her and burned her body and dumped it on his property without any Avery family seeing them do this or 2) they found her body, burned it and decided to frame him with it because they psychically knew she’d just been to his property. Every piece of evidence points to Avery being the killer, and there’s an even eyewitness/co-criminal. There is zero evidence anyone else did it.

      It isn’t reasonable doubt to say those two aren’t guilty. It’s whacked out crazy unreasonable. You probably think OJ didn’t do it, either, don’t you?
