Steven Avery Sends a New Message to His Supporters (PHOTO)

steven averyAfter years of relative silence, Steven Avery is suddenly being a lot more communicative. First the subject of Making a Murderer wrote a letter to a news station disputing his former fiancée's claims that he's guilty; now he's written a note to his supporters via his new attorney, Kathleen Zellner. 


Apparently Avery is feeling more confident about the possibility of someday being exonerated in the light of Making a Murderer's popularity (and the hundreds of thousands of signatures on petitions asking that he receive a new trial). Of course his contact with the outside world is limited from behind prison bars, but with the help of Zellner, he's now sending the following message:

"To My Supporter's: I want Every Forensic Test Possible Done B/c I am Innocent." 

Wow. Well, he's definitely sticking with his story. But is it true? Maybe, as Zellner claims, her new evidence really will clear Avery's name.

Either way, Avery seems determined to remain hopeful. As his friend and former fiancée Sandy Greenman recently told People

"It's not just [that he's got a new] lawyer, it's the people. It makes him smile. It's a firestorm. I didn't expect it to be this big. We have messages from all over, different countries, different states. It's nice to know that people support us."
