Sergeant Colborn From ‘Making A Murderer’ Responded To Accusations That He Planted Evidence With Teresa Halbach’s Car
Netflix’s Making a Murderer will be returning with season two (hopefully) sometime in 2017, but until its premiere we’ve gotta find stuff to hold us over. Steven Avery’s lawyer, Kathleen Zellner, has been talking a big game about setting Avery free in the near future, and earlier this month Brendan Dassey’s sentence for taking part in the murder of Teresa Halbach was overturned. That’s right – Dassey’s finally gonna make it to WrestleMania, almost ten years after his conviction.
But where does that leave us with the law enforcement featured in the documentary? There have been theories on how they managed to get away with planning evidence, but Sergeant Colborn, the officer who supposedly moved Halbach’s car, is calling bullshit on all of them.
In an interview with In Touch, Colborn says that Zellner’s claims are “as ludicrous as anything else she’s come up with, and beyond that”:
In response to allegations made by Zellner that law enforcement moved Teresa’s vehicle, Det. Colborn tells In Touch, “I don’t have any other comment other than that is ludicrous.”
Despite Det. Colborn’s insistence that law enforcement has an “airtight case against Mr. Avery,” he says Zellner’s decision to file the motion didn’t come as a shock.
“I’m not surprised at all,” he tells In Touch. “The war against law enforcement continues and I’m not surprised at all.”
We all remember that Colborn, who had never seen Halbach’s car before in his life, was somehow able to repeat its license plate number to dispatch before it was officially discovered, right? And then it was magically found on Avery’s property? No wonder the guy’s keeping mum on the allegations against him and the rest of the Manitowoc Police Department – if Zellner gets her way, they’re all in a heaping fuckload of trouble.
