The hacker group Anonymous says it has evidence that could exonerate Steven Avery, the subject of Netflix's true-crime documentary Making a Murderer.
Using the new Twitter account OPAveryDassey, the group promised to release evidence on Tuesday that shows that two Manitowoc County, Wisc., police officers, Sgt. Andrew Colborn and Lt. James Lenk, were conspiring in the case against Avery and his cousin Brendan Dassey. Anonymous gave police 48 hours to release phone records between Colborn and Lenk and an evidence list that would shed light on the officers' behavior at the time of the investigation.
When the phone records weren't released by the police, Anonymous released Officer Lenk's personal email address to the public.
At press time, Anonymous still had not released the phone records or emails they claim will exonerate Avery.
Making a Murderer chronicles Avery and Dassey's convictions for the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach. Halbach was last seen taking photos of a car on Avery's property. Lenk and Colborn were also directly involved in wrongfully sending Avery to prison for 18 years in 1985 for the sexual assault and attempted murder of a female jogger.
