Director of Netflix & # 39; Making a Murderer & # 39; follow-up gives details about & # 39; secret prisoner & # 39; that known
Filmmaker Shawn Rech sat down with TMZ to discuss the confession interview he said he had locked up with an unnamed secret prisoner in Wisconsin
The spirit behind Netflix & # 39; s new & # 39; Making a Murderer & # 39; spin-off series sheds light on the confession he says his team received from a yet to be identified prisoner in Wisconsin who has been behind the time spent on unrelated murder.
Director Shawn Rech & # 39; convicted a murderer & # 39; told TMZ that the & # 39; secret prisoner & # 39; wrote a letter to his team about 18 months ago before speaking to them during a recorded interview.
The original intentions of the individual were to further involve Steven Avery, 57, in the subject of the original & # 39; Making a Murderer & # 39; docuseries that, according to Rech, had been wrongly convicted of a crime he had not committed.
Avery and his cousin Brendan Dassey, 29, were found guilty of the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005.
& # 39; (The secret prisoner) wrote a letter with many claims, a nine-page letter & # 39; s. We found a number of things in the letter that we considered questionable, & said Rech TMZ. & # 39; We made a call to talk to this person to confront them with some things in the letter that we thought were doubtful …
Director Shawn Rech & # 39; convicted a murderer & # 39; told TMZ that the & # 39; secret prisoner & # 39; wrote a letter to his team about 18 months ago before speaking to them during a recorded interview
The original intentions of the individual were to further involve Steven Avery, 57, in the subject of the original & # 39; Making a Murderer & # 39; docuseries that, according to Rech, had been wrongly convicted of a crime he did not commit.
& # 39; They did not appear in the letter at all. One minute after that call, we knew that that letter was a complete lie. And the person had already known that he had killed Teresa. & # 39;
The US Department of Justice told TMZ that it is investigating the alleged confession, but it is important to note that this new information is directly in conflict with information previously provided by the same person & # 39 ;.
Rech said the anonymous source provided many details that roughly corresponded to the well-known public timeline of how Halbach's death and the resulting investigation unfolded.
& # 39; They also gave details about how they worked with law enforcement and why there was evidence against Steven, how he framed the homeowner, didn't know who the homeowner would be, things like that, & # 39; he continued.
Teresa Halbach was murdered at the age of 25. The story about her death and subsequent lawsuits was dealt with in the Netflix series & # 39; Making a Murderer & # 39;
Steven Avery (left), 57, and his cousin Brendan Dassey (right), 29, were convicted of killing Halbach and both received life sentences. Avery & # 39; s without conditional release, Dassey & # 39; s with conditional release to consider in 2048
& # 39; Two men are in jail and a convicted murderer from the state says they did it. It must therefore at least be examined. & # 39;
Rech described his new 10-part docuseries & # 39; Convicting a Murderer & # 39; as a more extensive, & # 39; even & # 39; Investigation into the murder of Halbach and subsequent criminal cases.
& # 39; I have & # 39; Making a Murderer & # 39; I am convinced that Steven Avery is innocent and must be rented out, & he said. & # 39; As filmmakers, we're not going to withhold information and use it to promote our project when it finally comes out while two boys rot in prison. The information must now come into the right hands and be investigated and followed up. If something is wrong, use it. & # 39;
Earlier this week, Rech said Newsweek: & # 39; Since it was given by a notable convicted murderer from Wisconsin, we feel responsible to provide all possible evidence to law enforcement and legal teams. & # 39;
His team has been in production for 20 months, where they claim & # 39; inscrutable amount of information and evidence & # 39; to have discovered that according to him they will lead to the truth.
Both Avery and Massey have retained their innocence. Dassey's case went to the Supreme Court, where his plea for a new trial was rejected and Avery is still in the appeal process.
