Sometime during the day on October 31, 2005, photographer Teresa Halbach was scheduled to meet with Steven Avery, one of the owners of Avery Auto Salvage, to photograph a maroon Plymouth Voyager minivan for Auto Trader Magazine.
On November 11, 2005, Steven Avery was charged with the murder of Halbach. Avery protested that he had been framed.
Brendan Dassey was an alibi for Steven, he was not charged until March ( five months later ), it’s clear the alibi was true but his confession was false ( in fact the final prosecution case was totally different to the coerced confession ). Every thing Brendan volunteered in his confession was false (contradicted by the forensic evidence ).
The framing was rather extensive, involving the planting of blood, a bullet with DNA, a car key and burnt bone fragments. Planting DNA and blood shows sophistication and planning. Also, the key (for the victim’s car) was scrubbed before Steven’s DNA was placed on it. No DNA from the victim was found on the key – which is inexplicable.
Nothing adds up : for example the bullet with the victims DNA was eventually found months later in a garage, but there was no trace of blood in there – impossible if the victim was shot there, as the prosecution eventually claimed.
The defence implied police planted the key, however this makes little sense, surely the person who murdered Holbach had possession of her car key, not the police [ unless it was a spare key? ].
In December 2015, Netflix released a long film about the case “Making A Murderer”. In the film Edward Wayne Edwards is apparently seen in a court building in 2006 in Wisconsin (man in blue top in background ). Correction: on Jan 31, 2016, it was discovered that the man is someone else.
Edwards murdered Halbach and framed Avery.

Did Edward Wayne Edwards Kill Taresa Halbach and set up Steve Avery?
Edwards, a misguided boy, vowed to be the best criminal ever. He killed scores and scores of people of all ages over a sixty-six-year period, and was never caught (for murder). Included are some of the most famous murder cases in the past century.

Update April 23, 2016. A police report of a witness who heard a “woosh” and smelt a “very vile smell”. This could be Edwards incinerating the body of Teresa Halbach.
