On November 3, 2005, Teresa Halbach, a 25-year old photographer from Calumet County, Wisconsin was reported missing by her mother.  The last time anyone saw or heard from her was on Monday, October 31.  Her last appointment on that date was booked by Steven Avery, who used the name “B. Janda” to photograph a van located at Avery Auto Salvage in Manitowoc County.  On  November 5, Teresa’s Toyota RAV-4 was found hidden on the Avery property by civilians who were searching the salvage yard with permission from Earl Avery.  A .22 rifle was seized from Avery’s trailer on November 6 and a burned Motorola cell phone and burned Canon camera were found in a burn barrel near Avery’s trailer on November 7.  On November 8, 2005, a Toyota key was found in the bedroom of Avery’s trailer.  The license plate for Teresa’s vehicle was found later inside a car on the Avery property.  In February, 2006, an Avery cousin reported that 16-year old Brendan Dassey had been acting out, crying a lot and losing weight.  During questioning on March 1, 2006, Dassey admitted to his involvement in Teresa’s murder and provided information that led to the discovery of a .22 bullet with Teresa’s DNA in Avery’s garage and Avery’s epithelial DNA on the hood latch of Teresa’s vehicle.  Join Lisa O’Brien and Michael Carnahan on December 18, 2018, at 8:00 p.m. Central for an interview with Kenneth Kratz, the former Calumet County prosecutor who tried Avery and Dassey and the author of Avery: The Case Against Steven Avery and What “Making a Murderer” Gets Wrong.   We’ll discuss the evidence linking Avery and Dassey to the murder of Teresa Halbach and the backlash from the Netflix documentary Making a Murderer.  We’re a live show and calls are welcome.  Our phone number is (347) 989-1171.
