Cold Case Expert Says He Knows Who Really Killed Teresa Halbach of 'Making a Murderer'

edward wayne edwardsIt's the biggest question left unanswered by Making a Murderer: If Steven Avery didn't kill Teresa Halbach, who did? Now John Cameron, a former police sergeant and FBI cold case task force worker, thinks he has the answer.

According to Cameron, the person behind Halbach's murder is Edward Wayne Edwards, a serial killer who was convicted for the deaths of five people -- but some investigators believe he was responsible for many more deaths, including such famous unsolved killings as Chandra Levy, JonBenét Ramsey, and the Robin Hood Hills murders. 

What makes Cameron think Edwards is to blame? A few (fairly compelling) reasons. First of all, Halbach went missing on Halloween night; Edwards killed several of his victims on Halloween. He was a local (sort of), living just one hour away from Steven Avery at the time of Halbach's death, and had killed two people in Wisconsin before (high school couple Timothy Hack and Kelly Drew in 1980). He allegedly "specialized" in framing other people for his murders, and enjoyed the media attention his crimes received, sometimes showing up at the trials of people he framed. Apparently he can be seen in the background of a documentary about the West Memphis Three (originally convicted of the Robin Hood Hills killings), and now some are convinced that he also made an appearance in Steven Avery's Making a Murderer trial footage. 

Some say that's him, standing behind Ken Kratz on the left: 

Hmmm. Possible, right? And if you're wondering how a convicted killer could have managed to also murder Halbach, Edwards wasn't arrested until 2009 (when his own daughter turned him in).

It's all definitely food for thought. But will we ever know for sure? Unfortunately, no one can ask Edwards to confirm or deny the theory, as he died in prison of natural causes in 2011. Still, there might be more evidence out there. For more on the connection, check out this video:

Chilling, no matter how you look at it! And a mystery that may end up going unsolved forever.
