If Steven Avery didn’t kill photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005 — a possibility we were forced to consider after watching the hit Netflix documentary Making a Murderer — then who did? Some people, including a prominent police detective, think serial killer Edward Edwards was responsible for the murder, then framed Avery.
Edwards, who died in jail on April 7, 2011, killed at least five people, if not more. His known victims are two people in Ohio in 1977, two people in Wisconsin in 1980, and another person in Ohio in 1996. Even before these murders, though, he landed himself on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list following a prison escape.
John Cameron, a retired police detective who worked on FBI serial killer task forces and whose cases have been profiled on America’s Most Wanted and Dateline NBC, thinks it was Edwards who killed Halbach 12 years ago.
