    I do not agree with BD's conviction.

    I have mainly focused on SA in this case. I seen enough of those interviews, in the doc and online, and IMO those 'confessions' are sad and ridiculous all in one. I was so disturbed by that, probably because I have 2 sons, 15 and 16.... their IQ's are much higher than 73 (although there are days I would disagree lol).... and I can't say that they wouldn't confess in that situation either. I have informed both of them after seeing this that under no circumstances are they ever to talk to a police officer without me or my husband present.

    Brendan is clearly guessing when he states that she was shot 10 times. He changes his testimony on this countless times. He states finally that she was shot 10 times after he is reminded by investigators that "they have numerous shell casings in the garage, but they won't tell him how many"

    His testimony on how Teresa was shot is completely inconsistent, I honestly cannot see how it could be useful at all, or how anyone could believe anything from it. He first says she's shot in the bedroom, then the side of the garage, then the jeep, then the garage. He changes the amount of times she's shot numerous times, and he also initially testifies Steven shot her after she was already dead- Why? Well, he can't really answer that question.

    In the middle of all this, he does tell a story about how he can't shoot a gun anymore, or watch, because his Mom's ex-boyfriend had to shoot one of their cats when it was hurt/sick or something, and he couldn't look and now he doesn't/can't watch shooting anymore, or something along those lines. This is unprompted, and I do believe this to be true. Brendan apparently had a soft spot for cats- his mother bought two cats shortly after he was imprisoned and she talks about how she can't wait for him to meet them, she bought them for him or something (it's in the documentary, I'll try to find what she says exactly). I also remember reading an article about Brendan liking cats, WWE, and PS2, I'll try to find that as well. The cat story really stuck w. me however, even though investigators discounted it immediately. I don't believe Brendan was around when Teresa was shot, nor do I believe he shot her, his testimony on this is just guessing IMO. He never even mentions a gun w.o Wiegert bringing it up.

    I get it.

    I too, agree. And I too, stand corrected. ( I'm sure I'll be corrected at some point along the way, the law and all )

    Have you posted your theory on what you think happened, BigCityAccountant? Curious how you think he left it all there and which murder scene/confession you're going with? ( No disrespect, there have been a few, as we all know )

    No, I haven't...thanks for asking...I don't have a a theory yet...having been married (prior) to a sociopath and or dating one for 20+ years and then finding another...you learn a thing or 2 about them. They are very frightening and dangerous people. They win at all costs--that's exactly what Avery is doing here putting the doubt in people's minds, that's the game and its somewhat scary to watch.

    I have been a true crime junkie for YEARS!!

    While researching cases;
    Missing persons, and even serial killers ( comparing notes/evidence ) I often think to myself " please do not let anything happen to my husband or one of us here in the house! If LE searches my computer or any other device in my house ( phone included ) one of us are in so much trouble!!

    Do some research on sociopaths--that is a characteristic, usually happens before age 15 as I understand.

    Me toooo dexter, I never came to websleuths as an active poster until the other site shut down ( what was it called? the one that was for court tv, my old age is kicking in LOL)
    I was telling a friend about the show a few days ago.... she said "let me guess.... you are online and are being OCD about this case now?" LOL I always make sure I tell people... cuz geesh, heaven forbid something happened to hubby and they looked at my computer. I told him tonight I was googling about guns, etc. ... he said screw it, if something ever happens to me, just destroy your computer LOL

    For all of those on the fence, let me ask you one question. The innocence project was involved in freeing Avery the first time....where were they during the 2nd? Why were they not there? After all, some are claiming he was framed, he's innocent, etc. etc. Isn't that what they fight for, righting the wrong? Why didn't they feel the need to get involved the supposedly 2nd time, he was an innocent man going to jail.

    Bodies are cremated at 1400-1800 degrees Fahrenheit and those are the optimal temperatures a crematorium uses. Any open fire like Avery's would be lucky if they hit those temperatures. What's more... Even the investigators noted in Dassey's confession that the entire burn area was only a few feet by a few feet. The odds are good (if you believe Dassey) he placed the clothing in the middle of the burn. Even if he didn't, 2000 degrees Fahrenheit would be impossible to reach in a backyard fire pit.

    Fact check. They have information on his current case listed on their website.
