Steven Avery calls rebuttal series ‘Convicting a Murderer’ a ‘garbage documentary nobody should watch’

“Making a Murderer” subject Steven Avery is serving life in prison without parole for killing 25-year-old Teresa Halbach and burning her body on Oct. 31, 2005. He claims he was framed.

FOX LAKE, Wis. — Although the docuseries “Convicting a Murderer” will not be released until Sept. 7, “Making a Murderer” subject Steven Avery has panned the project.

During a video message to his supporters, the 61-year-old convicted murder deterred them from watching the series that creators say includes elements of Avery’s case that “Making a Murderer” left out.

“There’s a garbage documentary,” Avery says. “Nobody should watch that. It’s straight-up garbage. It’s all a bunch of lies.”

Later in the clip, Avery says family members Early Avery, Chuck Avery, Barb Tadych, Scott Tadych, and Bobby Dassey should be charged with destroying evidence as part of a conspiracy to frame him for the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach.

“That carries a lot of [prison] time,” Avery says. “They all can pull out 50, 100 years. So, we gotta get going because I am getting sick of Fox Lake [Correctional Institution]. Fox Lake is getting worse and worse. I gotta get out.”

Avery also says Bobby Dassey is the one who killed Teresa Halbach.

“This judge should be letting me out already and giving me a new trial,” he says. “The evidence is there on Bobby. He should have been arrested. Why ain’t the state arresting him?”

Meanwhile, the Candace Owens fronted “Convicting a Murderer” drops Thursday on Daily Wire+. The trailer and both parts of Avery’s message to his supporters are below.
