Steven Avery’s defense team announces reward to find “real killer”

Local News

The defense team for convicted murder Steven Avery is hoping to find information that exonerates their client.

Lawyer Kathleen Zellner announced a $100,000 reward for information that leads to the “real killer” of Theresa Halbach.

Zellner says the reward is being offered by a “concerned citizen.”

Avery was convicted in the murder of Halbach and was featured in the Netflix documentary “Making a Murderer”.

In August, a circuit court judge denied Avery’s request for a new trial based on investigators’ handling of evidence.

Avery’s case is now in the Wisconsin court of appeals
