Steven Avery: Fiancee Lynn Hartman says initially she wasn’t interested in Making a Murderer case
Hartman was introduced to the series Making a Murderer, and Avery’s case, following the insistence of her daughter. Hartman, a Las Vegas legal secretary, was at that time going through a divorce. Hartman said she “wasn’t interested because I was a Nancy Grace fan, and I believed what she said about the case. So my answer to my daughter was, ‘I don’t want to watch it – I already know [Avery’s] guilty.'”
After watching most of the episodes Hartman started believing that, as was suggested in the series, Avery was framed for filing a multi-million dollar lawsuit after he was wrongfully convicted for sexual assault and spent 18 years in jail.
Avery, who along with his nephew Brendan Dassey is the subject of massively popular Making a Murderer, was convicted in 2007 for the murder of 25-year-old photographer Teresa Halbach. He is currently serving life in prison at the Waupun Correctional Institute, Wisconsin.
Steven Avery: Fiancee Lynn Hartman says Avery has been a ‘support system’
Dassey’s conviction was recently overturned by a federal judge. The decision is being appealed by the state of Wisconsin. Asked about Dassey’s possible release, Avery said, “The truth is coming out and sooner or later all the truth will come out.”
For Hartman, Avery has been a “support system,” People reports.
“In the beginning of our relationship, we spent a lot of time laughing,” Hartman says. “He’s a very happy – very loving, very selfless. He’s got a great support system with this family.”
