“What is truth?” -Pontius Pilate
*Minor-spoilers…if you haven’t watch the series yet.
If you’re like most sedentary, DVR TV-watching Americans (jk, it’s OK to blob around during the holidays!), you may have caught the tragic yet intriguing Netflix documentary series called ‘Making a Murderer’.
Filmed over the course of 10 years, the 10 episodes* recount the story of Wisconsin man Steven Avery, a man who was imprisoned for sexual assault and attempted murder, and who was later exonerated, only to be subsequently accused of the grisly murder of Teresa Halbach.
Regardless what side of the fence you’re on regarding Avery’s guilt or innocence, it is truly engaging content and serves as an intense and often times sober reminder at how important the truth is.
But alas the viewer is left with possibly even more questions about the truth of the matter than it began with.
Both the defense and prosecution present sometimes convincing and sometimes questionable evidence.
Towards the end of the program the attorneys involved talk about the possibility of new evidences that could come out or be discovered, including advances in scientific testing and forensic technologies, in the future that could have an effect on any future legal proceedings surrounding this case.
If we learned anything after all those episodes however, it’s that law enforcement could sometimes really use our help.
Krimeshare is the perfect crowd-sourced investigative tool to do exactly that.
The Internet has so many not-so-bright bright, motivated, and educated individuals that it is entirely possible a new set of evidences could manifest because of folks’ hard investigative work.
The point is nobody knows for sure still the truth, and to channel the great Fox Mulder, “The truth is out there.”
