Making A Murderer's Steven Avery Pens A Letter Blaming his Lawyers for his Conviction

54-year-old Steven Avery because internationally known last winter when Making a Murderer, a documentary about his life, was released on Netflix.

Avery was accused of the murder of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach in 2005, and in 2007 was convicted with life without possibility of parole.

Now, Avery has released a letter blaming his lawyers for his conviction. In the letter, which is he sent to In Touch, he says there is evidence that will exonerate him once again.
