After watching Making A Murderer a lot of viewers are really questioning if Steven Avery is a murderer or someone that was wrongly convicted for the second time. Entertainment Weekly is sharing that former Wisconsin state prosecutor Ken Kratz is sharing that Netflix didn’t share a huge piece of key evidence in their show Making A Murderer about Steven Avery. Kratz really feels like viewers might think differently if they knew everything.

Ken Kratz actually contacted People via email about Making AMurderer and shared his thoughts. Here is what Ken had to say about Steven Avery’s case.
You don’t want to muddy up a perfectly good conspiracy movie with what actually happened and certainly not provide the audience with the evidence the jury considered to reject that claim.
In Making A Murderer, Steven Avery has been convicted for the murder of a young photographer, Teresa Halbach and is currently serving life in prison without the possibility of parole. Avery still to this day says that he was framed. Ken Kratz refused to be filmed for the movie and share his point of view. Kratz feels like Avery actually targeted Halbach and is sharing a few details. Kratz says that Halbach was “creeped out by him.” In email, he explained more.
She [went to her employer and] said she would not go back because she was scared of him.
Kratz says that when Teresa Halbach showed up the first time to do the photo shoot for Autotrader, Steven was wearing only a towel. He later called up there and asked them to send her back once again and he did want the same girl. He allegedly gave his sister’s name and number to “trick” Halbach into coming. Kratz went on to explain some phone calls that Making A Murderer fans need to know about when making an opinion on if Steven Avery is a murderer or not.
Phone records show three calls from Avery to Teresa’s cell phone on Oct. 31. One at 2:24 [p.m.], and one at 2:35 — both calls Avery uses the *67 feature so Teresa doesn’t know it him…both placed before she arrives. Then one last call at 4:35 p.m., without the *67 feature. Avery first believes he can simply say she never showed up…so tries to establish the alibi call after she’s already been there, hence the 4:35 call. She will never answer of course, so he doesn’t need the *67 feature for that last call.
Steven Avery of Making A Murderer was in jail for a rape that he was later cleared of, but while he was there Kratz says that he revealed something to another prisoner that will make you think twice.
[He] told another inmate of his intent to build a ‘torture chamber’ so he could rape, torture and kill young women when he was released. He even drew a diagram.
Another prisoner says that suspected murderer Steven Avery explained that the way to get rid of a body was to burn it, which is what happened to Halbach’s body. He also explained that Avery’s DNA was found under the hood of Teresa Halbach’s car. Kratz also says there is no way that Avery’s bullet could have been planted. He explained the details that were left out of Making A Murderer.
Ballistics said the bullet found in the garage was fired by Avery’s rifle, which was in a police evidence locker since Nov. 6, 2005. If the cops planted the bullet, how did they get one fired from [Avery’s] gun? This rifle, hanging over Avery’s bed, is the source of the bullet found in the garage, with Teresa’s DNA on it. The bullet had to be fired before Nov. 5.
Making A Murderer has a lot of people questioning if Steven Avery was set up or if he really did kill Teresa. It is very obvious that Kratz still believes that Avery is a murderer, or at least that is what he is explaining to everyone, but people who believe he set Avery up will have trouble listening to what he has to say.

Mashable shared that the filmmakers are not done with Making A Murderer. Moira Demos and Laura Ricciardi spent 10 years making the original film. They are still documenting what they find out and still talking to accused murderer Steven Avery. It does sound like a new season of Making a Murderer could happen.
