Making a Murderer’s Steven Avery is gradually turning into the world’s strangest sex symbol, according to his on-again-off-again fiancée.
Avery, the man accused of killing 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach, is being sought by female fans who want to be his wife. He receives as many as 40 letters and pictures a day of near-naked girls.
However, as reported by the Daily Mail, Sandra Greenman said that the popularity he has received following the airing of Netflix’s Making a Murderer has gone to his head. According to Greenman, Avery thinks he has achieved the status of a Hollywood star. She added that he is spending the money he thinks he will receive in compensation upon his release.
Making a Murderer: Docu-series has transformed Avery, Greenman says
Avery is currently serving life in prison without the possibility of parole for the murder of Halbach. He previously spent 18 years in prison on a sexual assault charge before DNA evidence exonerated him.
Greenman said that Avery’s popularity has transformed him since the release of the docu-series. He is trying to seduce women while in prison (with a 53-year-old brunette from Las Vegas Greenman said he has particularly grown fond of). As far as herself in concerned, she claimed he is keeping her as a “first reserve.”
Making a Murderer: ‘He’s the strangest sex symbol you’ll know’
“There’s been a lot of issues I’ve been speaking to the lawyer about. [Avery] has received more mail from women, and I’m talking about not just letters, but pictures, bikini ones,” Greenman said. “For a while, he was getting 40 letters a day, some of these women are falling at his feet, they want to be a celebrity. He’s never had women after him like this. He’s the strangest sex symbol you’ll know.”
Greenman visited Avery for the first time upon the suggestion of her husband Wally. She soon became obsessed with the case. After her husband’s death in 2009, Greenman and Avery became partners. However, she said she could not marry him as she did not want to get married in a prison.
“There’s been a lot of crying, I’m still going at least once a week, I don’t want to walk away, the case is part of me, and he still wants us to have some sort of relationship,” Greenman says. “’Steven Avery is an obsession, an addiction. Without him, it’s like cutting off my right arm. That’s why I can’t stay away.”
