Reportedly, a convicted killer who was in jail has confessed about the murder of Teresa Halbach. This crime is the current center of Netflix’s cult series, “Making a Murderer.” The director of this new documentary series has officially announced this news.
According to a report released by Newsweek, Shawn Rech has informed them that the convicted murder (whose name was hidden on request) gave the filming crew his confession about his crime while Netflix’s team has been filming him for the documentary. The convicted murderer’s documentary was a 10-part series that is unaffiliated with the “Making a Murderer.”
However, Shawn Rech has informed that he has not independently confirmed the news about the convicted murderer confessing his crime, but Shawn Rech has passed the information to law enforcement under legal terms.
The two men who are currently behind bars for murdering Teresa Halbach are Steven Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey. But both of these prisoners have denied the culpability ever since their arrests back in 2005.
However, the two seasons of the documentary series “Making a Murderer” has been arguing that Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey were innocent. The series has claimed so by saying that there are currently behind bars due to the corruption from the side of local officials. These local officials were said to against Steven Avery ever since Steven Avery has sued the county for over $30 million for an earlier wrongful conviction.
But contrast to the beliefs of the series, Shawn Rech has said that after he had conducted a little research, he realized that he was, in fact, mislead by his series while he had the entire story.
Shawn Rech has then confirmed that the confessor of the crime was either Steven Avery or his nephew, Brendan Dassey.
Shawn Rech’s series has been in production for two years now, and the series is still in search of a broadcaster.
