Ready for a Making a Murderer update? In a new interview with Newsweek, Steven Avery’s lawyer Kathleen Zellner has revealed that Avery’s defense team has identified new suspects in the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach. Of course, Zellner declined to name the suspects, but indicated that both were men with ties to the young photographer whose death is the focus of the Netflix docuseries Making a Murderer that was released in December 2015.

“We have a couple [of suspects],” Zellner confirmed. “I’d say there’s one, leading the pack by a lot. But I don’t want to scare him off, I don’t want him to run.”

She added that “[sometimes] women who have bad judgment about men are murdered.” The statement seems to hint that Halbach may have been killed by a close friend whom she trusted.

This is not the first time Zellner has spoken to the press about clearing Avery’s name and finding out “who actually killed Teresa Halbach.” Just last month the high-powered lawyer said that it was “fairly obvious” who had committed the crime.

Zellner also claims that Dean Strang and Jerry Buting  – the two memorable defence attorney’s featured heavily in Making a Murderer – managed to botch the original case by not arguing that Halbach’s phone records show her leaving Avery’s property alive.

Avery is currently serving life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of Halbach.

Meanwhile, the filmmakers behind Making a Murderer are thought to be discussing the idea of a second season of the hit Netflix show.
