Making a Murderer: Steven Avery's attorney presents 'new information' in homicide case

In a series of more than 20 tweets, Kathleen Zellner, Steven Avery's attorney, laid out an argument Thursday for a new suspect in the high-profile murder case.

"I'm going to walk you through what I've learned through my investigation that you didn't see in the show," Zellner said.

The Chicago attorney described in detail the events of the day of Teresa Halbach's murder - October 31, 2005 - and what role each key witness played that day.

"Buckle up," Zellner tweeted.

Avery's case has attracted increased national scrutiny ever since Netflix released its documentary series "Making a Murderer." Season 2 of the series dropped last month.

Avery is currently incarcerated for the murder of Teresa Halbach.
