“Only one person can answer that and that is Teresa [Halbach],” son of convicted murderer Steven Avery says
The son of Steven Avery, the subject of the Netflix documentary series “Making a Murderer,” has “no idea” whether his father is guilty of the murder of Teresa Halbach, for which he’s currently serving life in prison.
“I have no idea,” Steven Avery Jr. told Crime Watch Daily in an interview. “I mean…only one person can answer that and that is Teresa. But she can’t answer it no more.”
Avery’s other son, Bill, is more certain of his father’s innocence.
“No, I don’t think he did,” Bill Avery said in the interview.
In the interview, airing Monday, Steven Avery Jr. expressed mixed feelings about his family drama being put on display by the documentary series. The senior Avery was convicted of Halbach’s murder in 2007 and previously spent nearly two decades incarcerated on a wrongful conviction for sexual assault.
“It sucks having everything out in the open like that. At the same point, it’s good because a lot of people see a little bit of a bigger picture,” he said.
Bill Avery revealed that he regards his father as “a complete stranger.”
“I just see him as a complete stranger,” Bill said “I know that he’s my father, but I grew up without a father for so long that it just kind of feels like I don’t have [one].”
