The series gets highly controversial, it picks apart the Halbach murder case and alleges that Manitowoc county police framed Avery. Convicted as an accessory to Halbach’s murder, Dassey became a prominent figure in the series, with many believing his confession was coerced.
What was the confession about??
Based on the reports of The Wrap, a Wisconsin prisoner claims he is the one who murdered Halbach. The confession was made to the director of the upcoming series Convicting a Murder, Shawn Rech.
Shawn shares his thoughts and says,” We haven’t confirmed the legitimacy of the confession, but seeing as a notable convicted murderer from Wisconsin gave it, we feel responsible for delivering any possible evidence to law enforcement and legal teams. Having been in production for 20 months, we’ve uncovered an unfathomable amount of information and evidence that is leading us to the truth. Our investigation does not end here.”
Slated to premiere in 2020, Convicting a Murderer is a 10-part series in the same right crime vein Making a Murderer.
