Making a Murderer

*Spoilers below!!!!

Loaded up in Netflix a few weeks ago, everyone is buzzing about Making a Murderer. Shot over 10 years, this documentary about a Wisconsin man named Steven Avery follows the twists and turns of his unfortunate life as he is wrongly accused of a sexual assault and serves 18 years in prison for a crime that he didn't commit.

He gets back to his life and files a civil suit to compensate him for his lost years in prison.  Right when they are about to award him a large amount of money, a young girl goes missing and the police head straight to Steven Avery.  What happens next is a series of bad representation, horrible police work, a judge that has already decided he is guilty and more.

The story follows him through this next horrible ordeal and you see how a person's life, hanging in the balance and in the hands of others can go downhill at an alarming rate.

At the end of episode 3, things get interesting when a relative enters the story.
I don't want to give anything else away, but I watched this whole 10-episode series in two days and couldn't wait to see what happens.

Hoping for a happier ending for the Averys,
xoxo, kp
