Netflix‘s hit 10 part docu-series Making a Murderer explores the case of Steven Avery, who was sentenced to life-in-prison for the murder of a young woman by the name of Teresa Halbach back in 2005.
The prosecutor in the case, Ken Kratz, is looking to write a book about his experiences!
WBAY-TV reports that the reason Kratz wants to do so is:
“because the one voice forgotten to this point is Teresa Halbach.”
What makes this whole thing a bit disturbing is that Ken resigned from his position back in 2010 because of a sexting scandal. That makes us think this whole thing is probably just the former District Attorney trying to make some cash after being disgraced.
Oh, and if that’s not enough to convince you that Ken is probably just in it for the money, Kathleen Zellner, Avery’s current lawyer took to Twitter to share a letter Kratz wrote to Steven:
Kratz letter to SA:Confess so I can write book & profit.This bloodsucking gives vampires a bad name #MakingAMurderer pic.twitter.com/yBsXOE6dhl

This letter obviously seems a bit hypocritical as it is clear that Ken is ONLY innerested in telling his side of the story — not to mention he comes off a bit bitter after not being approved for visitation.
Can you REALLY blame Steven, especially after the former prosecutor in the case admitted to being a “d*ck” during the trial!
While it will be inneresting to see what kind of books come out as a result of Making a Murderer, we think we’ll pass on Ken’s version of the story as it is very apparent he doesn’t want to explore the case, but just retell his own words.
