Since Making A Murderer hit Netflix in 2015, fans of the show have been gripped by Steven Avery’s story.
Along the way there have been so many twists and turns which have kept us hooked on what's going down as Avery works to prove his innocence.
It appears though, the biggest twist is yet to come, as his new attorney Kathleen Zellner, says she’ll file papers on December 20 which detail why Avery should win his case which will lead to his eventual release.
Speaking to OK magazine, Zellner said the papers she’ll be filing contain all the legal arguments as to why her client, Avery, should win his case.
Zellner added these papers are an astonishing 22,000 pages long, stating:
"In one week, we’re filing the appellate brief, so we’re going to file all of this information with the higher court. We’ve got a record that’s 22,000 pages.
The higher court is going to review all of this new evidence. After we file, the state will file their response, and then the court will have an oral argument, and then they’ll make a decision. Whatever decision they make, it’s going to go to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. So even if we win, the state will still force it to be decided by the highest court in Wisconsin.
You must, if you can, create reasonable doubt by having an alternative theory that matches the evidence. That’s when you’re most likely to win a murder case.
My goal is to not just to find the constitutional violation to get Steven Avery a new trial, because many people are convicted again in their second trial. I am trying to get the evidence to what I believe is the truth of what happened, so that there won’t BE another trial."
Zellner is of course optimistic about winning the case - as she has been since she took it on. She says she's been given ‘a tip that was just jaw-dropping’ meaning they’re ‘getting close’ to convincing the judge how Avery should walk away free.
Zellner has also tweeted new major information:
