Next month Discovery Channel will premiere a one-off special, Steven Avery: Innocent or Guilty? which delves into the events leading to the conviction of Steven Avery in 2005, the case at the centre of the Netflix hit Making a Murderer.
It’s a case that has become an international obsession, and has sparked outrage over what’s been called a miscarriage of justice. With strange, murky facts, and the prior wrongful conviction of Steven Avery which saw him imprisoned for 18 years for a crime he didn’t commit, there have been some serious questions raised about the U.S. criminal justice process from investigation to conviction.
Steven Avery: Innocent or Guilty? presents the latest in this great mystery, and takes an in-depth look at the evidence, the key players, and the controversy around the case.
9:30m Friday April 8 on Discovery.
