This is an update of evidence that Edward Wayne Edwards, the serial killer, was involved in, and likely killed, Teresa Halbach ( leading to the wrongful conviction of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey ). The earlier evidence linking Edwards to the murder was in the form of two anonymous messages ( anonymous taunting messages are part of Edwards’ MO, see for example Laci Peterson remains planted or Chris Coleman or the Zodiac Killer or Elizabeth Short ), see here.
The new evidence is messages contained in at least 150 messages left by “I Killed Laci Peterson” on the “Fratpack forum” ( which may well have been run by Edwards and/or his associates ), from October 11, 2005 to at least November 10, 2005.

95. Tue Oct 11, 2005 6:05 am Thus in a matter of days. I will return to my old ways. Read the paper. It will happen sooner than later. [ Edwards gives notice there will be a high profile murder reported by newspapers. ]
96. Tue Oct 11, 2005 6:10 am
Fore if you may have my number. You will enter a permanent slumber. [ If someone has Edwards’ telephone number, they will be killed. ]
97. Tue Oct 11, 2005 6:15 am
Fore you and I should meet. Only once never to repeat. It is those as you.
Whom look best when turning blue.
98. Tue Oct 11, 2005 6:18 am
Not wise enough to figure my numbers.
Fore which you write proves your dumber.
99. Tue Oct 11, 2005 6:24 am
Fore now it is my time to leave.
Thus this is a time you should believe.
Now to prove what I say.
I return to my old ways. [ Edwards re-iterates he is leaving, returning to some previous MO ]

Subject: Judge May Rule On Life Insurance Today
Put my money in a bag. We will play a game [ Perhaps a reference to collecting the life insurance money for his “adopted” son Danny Boy that Edwards murdered in 1996 ]

Fore if you break the code. Then it is you who will know.
Fore now we will see. If you are as smart as me.

Fore thee who break ith thee code. Will be led to my humble la bode. [ The long code somehow points to Edwards’ home address ]

Fore thou say what I do shocks the world. I laugh at thee so seek a
woman with a man an earl. [ A reference to Steven Avery’s brother, Earl Avery. Steven accused his brothers, Earl and Charles, of possibly killing her. But Earl says that Steven apologized to him and that they’ve made up. ]
The timing and content of these messages suggest that Edwards was involved in the murder of Teresa Halbach, confirming the interpretation of the other anonymous messages.
