Making a Murderer Update 6 - Suspicious Damage to Teresa's Car


I received this pic and theory from an expert in the field, who messaged with:

Where is this piece of Teresa's Rav4? A wheel well cover is not small. Is it maybe in the quarry or right outside the salvage yard? You would not be able to see through the missing front left blinker (was found in the trunk) if the wheel well cover was still on Teresa's car. 

My theory is the car was towed onto the back of the Avery lot through the quarry with a tow strap. While being towed it bumped into the back of the vehicle towing it, smashing the front headlight, knocking out the blinker light and loosening the fasteners on the wheel well cover. Whoever is towing stops, picks up the blinker and throws it in the back and goes on their way. While towing Teresa's car through the quarry (directly south of the Avery lot) the bumpy/hilly terrain wiggled the wheel well cover loose and it fell off. 

I believe this wheel well cover could possibly still be on or around the quarry property directly south of Avery salvage.

This video shows how the wheel well is held on:



The plastic screws/clips break very easily in low speed front corner hits. I know from first hand experience how easy the wheel well cover can fall off. They break loose just a fastener or two and the weight of itself pulls it down into the tire, which then rips it off.

Pic below: Note the quarry sand and wheel well cover peeled back, suggesting a tow:

Making a Murderer Update 4 - German Suspect

This has been brought to my attention by several readers. The original source is Brian McCorkle. There is a discussion here.

While the Search for Teresa Halbach was underway in November 2005, another series of events was beginning in Bonduel, Wisconsin.

A woman was moving from Bonduel, Wisconsin to Maribel. She had rented a house with the lease to start on 1 November, 2005. The house was on a property that included several outbuildings.

In Bonduel, her husband had exhibited bizarre behavior such as sleeping in their attic and sleeping in a fetal position.

She discovered that the labels had been cut from her clothing, and then her underwear was missing. Her husband denied any knowledge. During the week, he said he burned something at their new address and said it was a doll crib. There was a doll crib at the Maribel address, however, it was not burnt, however.

During the marriage, the citizen found that her husband had attempted to burn himself in the past. He also had previously burnt her clothing. He was diagnosed with personality disorder, narcissistic disorder, depressive disorder, and psychosis, but he refused to take medication.

She found that on 31 October, 2005, he visited the Maribel area and had stopped at the rental before the lease began. He spoke of visiting an auto salvage yard. He commented that a woman wanted to take pictures of the rental property on 31 October while he was there, and he felt that the photographer was “stupid.”

During the week, she observed that her husband had scratches on his back and a cut finger that bled intermittently. She was beginning the move while working in Green Bay.

She found her underwear stuffed in an attic closet at the Bonduel home. She also noted a boombox along with cans of Cherry Pepsi Cola near the steps of the Maribel home. Her underwear disappeared again.

On the 5 of November, when they stopped for lunch in the Maribel area, the husband saw a missing person poster for Halbach and stated dogmatically, “She’s dead.”

The following evening, her husband’s behavior turned worse. He refused to allow her into the Maribel rental. The citizen contacted the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s department, and he was arrested on 6 November, 2005. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.

When she returned to the Bonduel home to continue the move, she checked the attic cupboard again for her missing underwear. Instead, she found a pair of yellow lace panties than were not hers. They were about her size and had stains consistent with menstruation. She placed the panties in a plastic bag to ask her husband about them.

About 10 November, 2005 she looked through the outbuildings in Maribel for her missing clothing. She found some of her clothing cut into pieces. She also discovered a can of lighter fluid with a bloody fingerprint.

Unbeknownst to the citizen, her husband had been placed in two separate psychiatric care facilities during his custody. He was released to an outside address in January, 2006. Court records show that address as Glen’s Bar and Grill in Manitowoc. The County did not notify the woman that her husband was free and in the community.

Between November and the end of the year, a few odd things happened. Two explicit adult magazines were placed on the property. Also, her dogs found relatively fresh bones somewhere on the property. She discarded the bones.

While attempting to distract the dogs from the bones, the citizen dropped her husband’s tool chest in one of the outbuildings. A masons’ hammer and a pair of surgical gloves fell from the chest. The hammer had visible dark red flecks.

In January, she noticed a person staring at her home from the gas station/truck stop across the road. She then discovered that her husband had been released as well as his address. When she parked in the parking lot of the bar and grill, he approached her car and insisted that she take him to the Maribel residence and began searching the house. During the search, he struck her. She called the Sheriff’s Department, and her husband was rearrested.

The new charges were burglary, intimidation of a witness, criminal trespass, resisting an officer, and bail jumping.

One night she noted a second floor balcony door was open. She entered the home and secured the door. After that she discovered an opened closet at the base of the stairs with a pair of women’s jeans, a top, and a pillowcase stained with red stains.

She contacted the sheriff’s department. When a deputy arrived, the citizen explained her findings and wondered if the clothing were connected with the Halbach case. She then discussed the other incidents with the deputy. The deputy stated that she believed the Halbach clothing had been recovered! She collected one magazine and the yellow panties.

If the Halbach clothing had been recovered, it was not information that was released at or after the trial of Steven Avery. If not, then the deputy was fabricating.

The citizen was contacted by Manitowoc County Detective Dennis Jacobs. Jacobs is the child sex investigator for Manitowoc County. He insisted that the panties were from a child despite the staining and size. He wanted the citizen to accuse her husband of pedophilia. He also volunteered that authorities had their suspect in the Halbach case.

She told Detective Jacobs of the cut clothing and a previous incident when her husband had burnt her clothing. His response was that was not a crime.

The woman left Wisconsin for a job in Oregon. On 2 March, 2006 the Manitowoc County prosecutor dismissed the charges of burglary and intimidation against the husband. Charges of disorderly conduct, criminal trespass, and bail jumping were also dismissed. He pleaded no contest to the two resisting officer charges and was sentenced to time served.

She believes that the victim services office in Manitowoc County provided her husband with her new address. He was at her door soon after his release.

She considered the events of the week of 31 October, 2005, and her husband’s behaviors and injuries. The citizen believes that there may be a connection with the Halbach disappearance. When she asked her husband about any possible connection, he simply laughed and said no one would believe her if she reported her suspicions.

But, she had developed a distrust of Manitowoc County law enforcement. Her husband was probably correct that the Wisconsin authorities could not accept the concept that someone else did the crime.

Making a Murderer Update 3 - Response From Innocence Project


Posted by Innocence Project:
Many of you have raised concern for the case of Steven Avery. As you have seen from the series, Making a Murderer, the criminal justice system is far from perfect. Cases like Avery are very complicated. As you will learn through the series, a member of the Innocence Network is currently looking into some aspects of his case. 
While we know from the 336 DNA exonerations that innocent people are wrongly convicted and serve long prison terms for crimes they didn’t commit, we don’t know how many innocent people are in prison seeking to clear their names. Fortunately, the filmmakers behind Making a Murderer are helping to shine a spotlight on some of the problems that plague the criminal justice system, like false confessions and government misconduct.

Making a Murderer Update 2 - Letter from Brendan Dassey

To the people in the world,
This is Brendan Dassey. I am writing to let you know that me and my uncle Steven are innocent. The investigators tormented me until I said what they wanted me to say. They used me to get to my uncle because they knew that if I testified at his trial they would have found him innocent because I would have told the real truth about what happened that day. The investigators got into my head saying that if I confessed to the crime, they would let me go and when I did they locked me up.

They tricked me. The investigators lied through their teeth on the stand. I was afraid of them back then. If I would get a new trial the truth would come out because I am not afraid of them anymore. They ruined me and my families lives. I missed so much in my life already. It's been almost 10 years since I've been taken away from my family.

The prosecutors don't care what they do. They just want a conviction. They don't care if the person is innocent. As longs as they get someone to put them away even if it's the wrong people.

If my story would get out everybody in the world would know that Steven Avery and myself are two innocent people. But with me being inside this place they do not let me talk to anybody to get the truth out.

Sincerely yours,
True and innocent,
Brendan Dassey

Making a Murderer Update 1 - Juror 11's Message

Juror 11, Rick Ray, published this statement on his Facebook wall on Dec 20:

There was a father of a Manitowoc county officer on the jury, also the husband of a woman who works in the Manitowoc county clerks office, whom should have never been on the jury. I was juror #11. The .22 in Steven Avery's trailer was never dusted for prints, Stevens DNA was tampered with and other things that were not adding up to me. I was excused for an emergency. My gut feeling after looking at all the evidence is that the killer is still out there. I talked to another juror after the trial. I asked him why they found him guilty and he told me, think of all the things he did when he was younger. If they after I left after four hours of deliberation, convicted him on that basis then most of us should be locked up for the stupid shit we did when we were younger. After I watched this, my feeling of his innocence is stronger. I am not saying the police did this terrible crime and my heart goes out to Teresa's family no family should have to go thru what they did. But my heart also goes out to the Avery family. And it worries me that the real killer may still be out there while once again an innocent man is put back in prison. Many jobs and reputations were on the line with Steven suing for $36 million. And who found that key in averys trailer, one of the Manitowoc deputies that should have not been there in the first place and had a lot to lose from Stevens civil suit against Manitowoc county and this officer and other officers.
