Avery: The Case Against Steven Avery and What Making a Murderer Gets Wrong by Ken Kratz

3.5 stars

I think I am the rare person who did not watch Making a Murderer. I tend not to read other reviews after I receive a book, but I did read then with this book. I read that a lot of people have made mention of Making of a Murderer and that they did not like how it was mentioned so much in this book. The televisions show was mentioned a lot in this book. I believe that Author did so for many reasons. He was a prosecutor on this case and did not like that not all the evidence was provided on the show and that what was provided was skewed and did not give the viewer the full story.Is this book guilty of being a tell all? Isnt that what this book is? The Author telling the story from his viewpoint as a prosecutor?

Was this writers bias skewed because he was the Prosecutor and felt a need to not only give the full story but also to paint himself into a more positive light after he tarnished his own professional career and ended his marriage after being reported for inappropriate texts he sent? I believe both. I believe he felt the need to tell the entire story and to give the reader (and perhaps viewer of the TV show) a picture of the victim, how she was lured and how she was murdered and her body burnt. I also feel this was his attempt to tell his story and explain why he choose the inappropriate actions he took. The Author makes no bones about having an issue with the the show. As I mentioned, I never watched the show, but Kratz does make a point to show excerpts of full testimony vs. condensed testimony that was shown on the TV program. I cant speak about the validity of the television program, but this man was the prosecutor on the case and I do believe he is giving the prosecutors point of view.

I mention quite often in my reviews that I have a forensic background and that is what speaks to me in this book. I like reading about all things related to forensics. While some people may find blood spatter analysis or autopsy results boring, forensics gets my juices flowing. I do wish there was more about the forensics in this case - I think most readers would be able to follow and be able to draw their own conclusions. I would have liked to see actual testimony transcripts.

Was Avery guilty of murder? He seemed definitely capable of it. Women in his life paint an ugly picture of him - specifically his abuse, there are letters he wrote in prison, recorded phone conversations. This man was not a nice person. In fact, he comes off as a misogynist. Plus, his story changed multiple times. I do agree with the prosecution, specifically when it comes to Averys accounts of the day in question. If you are innocent, why do you need to keep changing your story and would so much forensic evidence and bones be on your property? If he was framed as his defense claims he was, someone went to a lot of detail to hide her vehicle, have the license plate, DNA and her body burned on his property. I do not believe he was an innocent man.

I enjoyed the book. I have no desire to watch the Netflix series. I do feel the Netflix program was mentioned quite a bit but if information was skewed or given in a misleading way, then I can understand this writers attempt to set the record straight. I understand that the Author tarnished his reputation following this case - Im sure he included that to show that he is being honest and upfront in this book. Crime buffs and perhaps those who watched the show may find this book interesting.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Jon & Kate Investigate: Avery Auto Salvage

Of course, there was plenty of evidence against Avery including her car, which was found in his auto salvage yard with bloodstains that.

Steven Avery

According to law enforcement, she and the RAV4 never left, because Avery along with his nephew Brendan Dassey, who was convicted in a separate trial raped her, murdered her and then burned her body. The RAV4, prosecutors claimed, was driven into the salvage yard, parked and then hidden near a row of trees, where it was found by two volunteer searchers on the morning of November 5th, approximately 36 hours after Halbach was reported missing. Yet despite this attempt at separation, some MCSD officers continued to chip in on the case, though they were in theory supposed to be accompanied by CCSO officers. Police and prosecutors have long denied such accusations, and have accused the documentary series of unfairly presenting their actions and the case. CCSO did not return a request for comment for this story.

Who is Steven Avery?

Drone Flight Over Steven Avery's Property on Halloween!

Steven Allan Avery born July 9, is an American convicted murderer from Manitowoc County, Wisconsin , [1] who had previously been wrongfully convicted in of sexual assault and attempted murder. After serving 18 years of a year sentence, he was exonerated by DNA testing and released, only to be charged with murder two years later. In November , with his civil suit still pending, he was arrested for the murder of Wisconsin photographer Teresa Halbach, and in was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment without possibility of parole. The conviction was upheld by higher courts. Avery's exoneration prompted widespread discussion of Wisconsin's criminal justice system. The Criminal Justice Reform Bill, enacted into law in , implemented reforms aimed at preventing future wrongful convictions.

The documentary which is on the life of Steven Avery, looks like everything that could come from a badass crime fiction written by someone as good as James Ellroy, but it is a true story of a man who after being wrongly convicted for sexual assault and attempted murder and spending 18 years, was exonerated only to be back in prison for murder. What makes the whole case interesting is the question that no one can really answer; is he still innocent? There was nothing unusual about the earliest life of Steven Allan Avery; he was born on July 9, , to a family that was pretty normal in almost every way possible. His family lived in Two Rivers, Wisconsin where they also ran a salvage yard. While everything seemed normal, Steven was a slow learner and because of that, he attended an elementary school for slower kids. As it would later be revealed by his lawyer, Avery has an IQ of 70, which made it almost impossible for him to function in school. He was first arrested and convicted for burgling a bar, but he only spent 10 months of his two-year sentence before he was released on probation.

It was only a few years ago that Steven Avery became a household name. The documentary Making a Murderer put the convicted murderer into the spotlight and turned into a national obsession. Suddenly, everyone became a criminal justice expert overnight. One thing most people agreed on? He might be innocent. And wrongly convicted again.
