Redditors recently discovered logical proof that Making A Murderer suspect Steven Avery is indeed guilty for the murder of photographer, Teresa Halbach.
Previously, the amateur sleuths of Reddit discovered evidence that supports Avery?s innocence. However, a more recent discovery proves his guilt.
In a report by Refinery 29, user wewanawii shared a detailed analysis of photos of parts of a cellphone that belonged to Hallbach, which was found burnt inside a barrel in Avery?s property. The said barrel was the same one Avery was accused of having burned the victim?s remains. ?
The Reddit detective?s theory was that the fire might have seared Avery?s fingerprint onto the inside of the phone?s cover. He included in his analysis that fingerprints can survive fire. ?Heat stabilizes fingerprints on metal and glass surfaces,? he wrote. True enough, a smudge that appears to be a thumbprint can be seen in the photos of the burnt cellphone.
The Reddit user says that the prints have marks of scars which are similar to what Avery has on his fingers as wewannawii showed in another photo. There was also a photo which shows a crescent burn mark on the phone which appears to be similar to the scar on Avery?s finger.
Other users supported the theory and even analyzed everything down to the measurements of the print evidence, which one user even solved through mathematical distance formulas.
The fans? interest and obsession with the murder case documentary from Netflix are fully acknowledged by the series creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos. In a statement about the upcoming episodes, they said, ?The viewers? interest and attention has ensured that the story is not over, and we are fully committed to continuing to document events as they unfold.?
Making A Murderer is a ten-part documentary series which debuted in December 2015 on Netflix. It follows the story of Steven Avery of Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. He served 18 years in prison for crime that he did not do and was exonerated in 2003. He was arrested again in 2005 for the murder of Teresa Halbach. The series was documented over the course of ten years, and it also covers Avery?s arrest, prosecution and conviction. Avery?s nephew, Brendan Dassey, was also accused and charged of the murder.
Making A Murderer returns with its second season later this year.
