We finished this series last week and it’s been on my mind. To echo other posters, Manitowoc PD and sheriff’s department were some combo of the Keystone cops and the mafia. It’s unbelievable they didn’t recuse themselves from anything involving the Avery family or that another law entity didn’t order them totally off the case.
Brendan was clearly compromised by cognitive issues, this is what had me screaming at the TV. I so hope some competent innocence project has taken up his case, this young man is innocent. I want to send him money and chocolate chip cookies. Stephen’s parents also hurt my heart and I expected ma or pa to, at some point, to just drop dead from the stress and agony (and mom was clearly in very poor health to begin with).
Stephen . . . oh Stephen. I’m sure the officers and other colluding parties planted the key and possibly the blood. But I’m still bothered by the burnt body next to his trailer.
OTOH, Theresa’s male roommate struck me as shady. He inserted himself into the investigation, was key in finding her CRV, and fiddled around with her cellphone messages. The documentary suggests that the Keystone cops didn’t really investigate this guy.
