The Making a Murderer Case
Voices of True Crime
The House of Mystery Radio Show has been on the air for ten years, broadcasting in over a dozen cities in the U.S. It started as a way to interview guests knowledgeable in many of the world’s mysteries involving crime, science, religion, history, paranormal, conspiracies, etc. Voices of True Crime series is a curated collection of interviews from the show. Each volume focuses on an actual criminal case, or several, providing the background and reproducing the main points discussed in the interviews. This series is an excellent reference for researchers and a good overview for those unfamiliar with the case.
Volume 2 covers the Teresa Halbach murder case, made famous from Netflix’s Making a Murderer documentary series that began airing in December 2015. The House of Mystery Radio Show interviewed several of the key players involved in the case: Ken Kratz, the prosecutor of both Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey, and Michael Griesbach, District Attorney for Manitowoc Country who, after Steven Avery was wrongfully convicted in his first trial brought the misconduct of the law enforcement to the state’s attorney. For the defense, we spoke with Laura Nirider from the Innocence Project, an expert in false convictions. We also interviewed Shawn Rech, a filmmaker that set out to correct the record on this murder case and expose the inaccuracies in the Making a Murderer series by creating his own docuseries coming early 2023 titled Convicted.
We also examine one of the major theories surrounding this murder case brought on by retired Detective John A. Cameron. Cameron wrote a book that is the center of a five-part A&E series suggesting that the crime was committed by someone who had nothing to do with any of the players involved in Making a Murderer. He asserts serial killer Edward Wayne Edwards committed the crime. Online links to all the actual interviews are included.
