In WRECKING CREW: Demolishing The Case Against Steven Avery, John Ferak details the investigation of evidence, victimology, and suspects not discussed in detail in the Netflix documentary, Making a Murderer. With access to Kathleen Zellner, Ferak has the inside track.
Whether Steven Avery is guilty of murdering Teresa Hallback or not, WRECKING CREW brings attention to the issues of wrongful conviction, prosecutorial misconduct, and corruption of law enforcement and politicians in the case.
Why did the original investigation leave so much out, including victimology and other possible suspects? When lies and coverups are allowed, we never have true justice based on evidence of truth.
To write this book, Zellner, perhaps America’s most successful wrongful conviction attorney, gave Ferak unfettered access to the exhaustive pro bono efforts she and her small suburban Chicago law firm dedicated for a man she believes to be a victim of an unscrupulous justice system in Manitowoc County.
