Steven Avery’s lawyer announces a new document could secure the ‘Making A Murderer’ star’s freedom

'Just this week, we got a tip that was just jaw-dropping'

Kathleen Zellner, lawyer for Steven Avery of Making A Murderer, has just announced that she’s putting together a new document that could eventually secure his freedom.

Zellner has confirmed that she’s going to file an appelate brief this Thursday, which is a document that collects all of the legal arguments that assert that Avery should be freed. The document will run in at 22,000 pages, and Zellner hopes it will give ample proof that will push judges to rule in Avery’s favour, beginning the extensive process of securing his release.

“You must, if you can, create reasonable doubt by having an alternative theory that matches the evidence,” Zellner told OK! about the new document. “That’s when you’re most likely to win a murder case.”

According to Zellner, the new evidence will need to be reviewed by the higher court, but a final decision will fall on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. “Just this week, we got a tip that was just jaw-dropping,” Zellner explains. “Like, woah, somebody actually knows this. We’re getting close.”

The information comes after Zellner shared a long list of all of the evidence she’s collected that she claims to be proof of Avery’s innocence.
