Steven Avery’s current lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, has a forensic team searching his family’s salvage yard with hopes that she can prove his innocence. It’s likely this is the piece of evidence the lawyer recently claimed could exonerate Avery.
Zellner is known private lawyer who is responsible for the exoneration and release of 17 other men that were wrongfully convicted.
According to The Mirror, Zellner made an agreement with Avery that she would get a private forensic team to analyse all the evidence that still exists. Her plan is to use luminol testing for blood to prove that Teresa Halbach was not murdered in Avery’s garage or trailer as was claimed in court in 2006. Luminol testing is used to detect blood that is not visible to the eye and fortunately, the testing has advanced a lot since the 2005 murder of Halbach. No blood was found on Avery’s property other than in Halbach’s Toyota Rav 4 which was parked in the salvage yard.
Apparently, Zellner has purchased an exact replica of Halbach’s car implying she will help re-evalute evidence that found Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey guilty.
Zellner has reportedly visited Avery four times in the last month at Wapun Correctional Institution. She has ordered the Dassey and Avery families to refrain from talking to the press to prevent speculation.
If this evidence proves correct and leads to the exoneration of Avery, this would be the second time scientific advancements would free the him while serving time in jail.
