Steven Avery is innocent says Anonymous

Hacktivist group Anonymous have claimed that they have evidence to prove that a convicted murderer, featured in the Netflix documentary ‘Making A murderer’, is in fact innocent. 

The documentary follows Steven Avery in a case involving the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Department. According to Avery’s lawyers, much of the evidence against him was planted. reports:

The group has set up a Twitter account to taunt the two police officers who are profiled in the film, claiming that they have found emails and phone records that support the allegations.

Those behind the group posted a threat to the local sheriff’s department that they would release the documents unless they were officially released. The deadline that was given in that tweet has since passed, but no information has yet been made public.

The account has said that another group — Ghost Security, which is close to Anonymous —will be taking charge of releasing the documents. They would be unveiled “shortly”, the account posted.

The Netflix documentary highlights a range of alleged problems with the case, including what critics have said was coercive questioning and a reliance on possibly dubious evidence.

Avery is currently serving a life sentence in prison for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach, who disappeared in 2005. He has no hope of parole.

Anonymous has been actively involved in a range of campaigns in recent months. Those have included attacks on Isis as well as theKu Klux Klan.
