Steven Avery’s Lawyer Just Dropped A 1,272-Page Bombshell Revealing A New Name As A Suspect
Zellner, who has used her skills to get multiple cases overturned throughout the years, took over the case for the star of Netflix’s Making A Murderer after his many appeals had been denied, is confident he will eventually be exonerated.
Back in March of 2016, Zellner claimed she had a couple of other suspects in mind, but refused to say who they were for fear of scaring them off. Now, apparently, she feels confident enough to imply that at least one of them is Teresa Halbach’s ex-boyfriend.

In her motion, Zellner tries to pin Halbach’s murder on an ex-boyfriend, claiming he had motive and opportunity and that he misled investigators about damage on Halbach’s vehicle.
Zellner tweeted that Avery’s jury “did not hear evidence” on the ex-boyfriend.
In Zellner’s report she claims that Halbach’s ex-boyfriend was physically abusive and lied to the police when they interviewed him, cops a fake name. She also claims that at the time of the interview the ex-boyfriend had injuries to his hands, including scratches that appeared to be made by fingernails.
Zellner also claims that the ex-boyfriend had access to Avery’s land as well as Halbach’s house, giving him “complete control of evidence.” He was also the person who led police to the location of Halbach’s car on Avery’s property.
WBAY ABC 2 reports that Zellner’s filing focuses on five key arguments:
1. Ineffective defense counsel
2. Ethical violations by the prosecutor
3. Brady violation
4. New evidence
5. Allowable claim
