***WARNING: Making a Murderer Spoilers Below***
Netflix's 10-part docu-series Making a Murderer has captured the attention of tons of viewers all over the world as it explores the real life case of Steven Avery, in which he was convicted and is currently serving a life sentence for murdering a young woman by the name of Teresa Halbach back in 2005.
What makes the series so compelling is the amount of twists and turns it takes as we learn in the first episode that Avery was sentenced to jail for 18 years for a sexual assault crime he didn't commit.
After being exonerated with the help of new DNA evidence, viewers learn that he was bringing a $36 million lawsuit against Manitowoc County, Kocourek when he was all of a sudden suspected of murdering Halbach. As a result, he had to drop his lawsuit and settle for $400,000 in order to pay for his murder trial.

The docu-series does tend to be a bit one-sided and gives quite a bit of evidence to suggest that Steven was set up by the Manitowoc County Police Department for the murder of Halbach and even goes as far as to propose that there were two officers — Lt. James Lenk and Sgt. Andrew Colborn – involved.
Since the release of the real life crime show on Netflix, the former Wisconsin state prosecutor from the trial, Calumet County District Attorney Ken Kratz, has received quite a bit of backlash on his Yelp page and the hacker group Anonymous has even gotten involved to attempt to prove Avery's innocence.
Despite all of this, according to Kratz the documentary didn't tell the whole story as he told People there were key pieces of evidence omitted from the Netflix show. Kratz said:
