Avery was originally imprisoned for 18 years by the State Wisconsin for rape, a crime he did not commit. Because of his false imprisonment, Avery was planning to sue the Manitowoc police department for $36 million dollars, but was accused of the death of Teresa Halbach before his case could be resolved.

Avery was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of photographer, Teresa Halbach in 2005, though he says he is not guilty and that “The murder is still out there.”  


On Halloween, 2005 Halbach went to Avery’s property to take photographs of cars for sale, when she was mysteriously murdered. Avery’s nephew, Brendan Dassey confessed that he helped his uncle kill Halbach, but later confessed that he was lying. Dassey was also sentenced to life in prison.

The Manitowoc police department found a lot of evidence that pointed towards Steven Avery being guilty of the death of Teresa Halbach, but he is still fighting for his freedom.

This series will take you through the trial of Steven Avery, and go further into the details of the Teresa halbach case.
