'Making A Murderer' Lawyer Kathleen Zellner 'Sent Voicemail With Vital Evidence'

Making a Murderer lawyer Kathleen Zellner claims to have been sent an "accidental voicemail" about "evidence" in the Steven Avery case.

Kathleen is working to overturn Avery's life sentence for the murder of Teresa Halbach, and part two of the Netflix original documented her efforts.

And she hopes DNA testing on a pelvic bone, which is thought to belong to the victim, would clear Avery's name by showing that the murder didn't occur at the family's scrap yard. Kathleen has alleged that the bone was "planted" to "frame" her client.

Kathleen has now revealed the transcript of a voicemail which she claims was left by mistake by State prosecutors about the pelvic bone. This letter was written on 13th February, and she has now sent it to the Court of Appeals.

She alleges that Attorney Mark Williams called her by accident instead of the Assistant Attorney General Thomas Fallon.

Kathleen says that she has previously contacted prosecutors to find out if the State has the pelvic bone or whether it was returned to Teresa's family, but has had no answer.

This voicemail, she alleges, shows prosecutors are trying to avoid speaking to her.

According to the Mirror, her letter reads: "[...] the State is trying to deceive undersigned counsel and this Court about the status of the pelvic bone (#8675), which was recovered in 2005 from the Manitowoc Gravel Pit."

Referencing the alleged voicemail, Kathleen continues: "Hi Tom, this is Mark Williams. I'll send you an email later today, but I don't think we should do anything or respond to her at all until tomorrow, uh, when we look into the bag - and see exactly the pelvic bones are in there or not.

"So I wouldn't respond until we look into the bag tomorrow morning and then we can talk about it before we send a response.

"Thanks a lot. Bye."

Avery, who was convicted alongside his nephew Brendan Dassey for the murder, has always maintained his innocence in the case.
