In 2016-17, while working for the USA TODAY NETWORK's Wisconsin Investigative Team, author John Ferak wrote dozens of articles examining the murder case again Steven Avery, who had already beat one wrongful conviction only to be charged with the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. The case became the wildly successful Netflix "Making A Murderer" documentary. In WRECKING CREW: Demolishing The Case Against Steven Avery, Ferak lays out in exacting detail the post-conviction strategy of Kathleen Zellner, the high-profile, high-octane lawyer, to free Avery. To write this book, Zellner, perhaps America's most successful wrongful conviction attorney, gave Ferak unique access to the exhaustive pro bono efforts she and her small suburban Chicago law firm dedicated for a man she believes to be a victim of an unscrupulous justice system in Manitowoc County.
This book fairly closely follows the format of the Netflix documentary. Unfortunately, this case is far from concluded, but it's incredible that this case has gone on for so long, and still, the powers-that-be continue to perpetuate the injustice. It's absolutely unconscionable that law enforcement isn't being held accountable for their corruption. It's a truly scary prospect for the average citizen.
Kevin Pierce delivers his customary professional performance.
