The lead prosecutor featured in the breakout Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer says some key details have been omitted from the show.
Ken Kratz, who argued on behalf of the state of Wisconsin in the case against Steven Avery, told Maxim the series unfairly painted him as a villain.
“I understand that my demeanor may have been very brash, even overconfident… there was bit more bravado that I usually have, but this case kind of required that,” Kratz said. “They don’t even tell you 80% of the evidence that the jury saw. They purposely kept all of that evidence that I showed the jury that absolutely discounted this evidence-planting theory.”
Avery was charged with murdering 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach not long after being released from prison after serving 18 years for a crime DNA evidence indicated he didn’t commit. The series mainly focuses on Avery’s defense attorneys, who argued police planted evidence in an attempt to frame the man.
Kratz said the documentary does not other include evidence including the location of Teresa Halbach’s phone, camera, and other areas of her car that had Avery’s DNA.
