Former fiancée of Making A Murderer’s Steven Avery says he’s ‘not innocent’

A former fiancée of ‘Making A Murderer’s’ Steven Avery says he’s ‘not innocent’. WIth all the conflicting evidence, is it any surprise that she is flip-flopping now?


Steven Avery’s former fiancée has broken her silence – and said the truth needs to come out about ‘what a monster he is.’

Jodi Stachowski features prominently in Netflix’s Making A Murderer and in the series, repeatedly states her belief that he had nothing to do with Teresa Halbach’s murder.

But now, she has insisted that she was never in love with Avery – and that ‘he is not innocent’.

In an interview set to air on Nancy Grace on Wednesday night, Stachowski – who was in prison at the time of Halbach’s murder – also claimed Avery physically abused her.

‘I ate two boxes of rat poison just so I could go to the hospital and get away from him and ask them to get the police to help me,’ she told HLN’s Natisha Lance.

Lance reports that multiple police reports corroborate the claim that there was a long history of abuse.

Stachowski said she was not aware if the documentary’s filmmakers knew what her relationship with Avery was like.

But she said Avery always directed her to behave in a way that ‘made him look good’ when the cameras were rolling.

Her problems with alcohol abuse and repeated arrests are seen on the documentary until her relationship with Avery ends.

She now says that he sent her a letter from prison, threatening to report her to the police.

Last year, when Making A Murderer’s creators Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos asked her for one last interview, she said she declined – and even asked to not be featured in the 10-part series at all.

After the series’ phenomenal success – which sparked a number of petitions demanding Avery’s release – she said she realized she needed to speak out because it is ‘full of a bunch of lies’.

Here’s the full clip of her interview:

Pretty brutal.
