It’s been three days since I finished watching Making a Murderer on Netflix and I am still in complete and utter disbelief. If you haven’t heard about the new Netflix Documentary, then you really need to go straight to your TV, phone, iPad or what ever you stream Netflix on and watch Making a Murderer right now. This is one of those shows that you can’t just watch and then forget about. It is intense, scary and disturbing on so many levels. Not in the scary spooky boogie-man sense, but scary as in how can this sort of thing happen in the U.S.
WARNING: This post contains spoilers. I highly suggest you stop reading at this point if you haven’t yet seen the series.
What Is Making a Murderer About
Making a Murderer starts off by showing news footage of a man named Steven Avery being greeted by dozens of family, friends and reporters as he is released from prison. He served an 18+ year sentence for rape and attempted murder, a crime in which he didn’t commit. He was only released from prison after DNA evidence cleared him of the crime. At this point you are drawn in hook, line and sinker. There is no turning back. But as the series progresses this story only gets crazier and crazier. After Avery is released from prison he then proceeds to sue the county (rightfully so I might add) for upwards of $36 Million dollars for his wrongful conviction.
Now this is where the story starts to get intense. As this lawsuit is going on with depositions, etc. a woman by the name of Teresa Halbach goes missing. Her last known whereabout? The auto salvage yard owned by Steven Avery’s family in which he lives at. After a few days of Teresa being missing and extensive searches for her, the searchers end up finding her car there at the family property. They also find bone fragments in a fire pit right outside of Steven Avery’s home. And a few days later they find the key to her car inside Avery’s bedroom. Now it seems like police have their man. I mean there is just too much evidence to look elsewhere. But that’s the part that makes this story so interesting and you have to watch it to really understand and see for yourself.
There is SO much to this series and even after 10 episodes I still have many unanswered questions. But in my opinion, after watching the documentary, I believe that evidence was planted in this case. There are just WAY too many coincidences for their not to be some tampering. This is definitely a binge-worthy show and you want to give yourself plenty of time to be able to watch it all in one or two sittings. TRUST ME. Once you start watching you won’t want to stop. After you do watch Making a Murderer I really want you to come back here and tell me what you think? Is he innocent or do you think the police got it right?
