A Former Cop Thinks This Notorious Serial Killer Is Behind the ‘Making a Murderer’ Killing

January 21, 2016 Updated: January 21, 2016

A cold case expert and former police officer believes that Steven Avery, the subject of “Making a Murderer,” is innocent.

And he thinks he knows who actually killed Teresa Halbach.

John Cameron used to work for the FBI tackling cold cases, as well as being a police sergeant for a spell.

Cameron says serial killer Edward Wayne Edwards liked not only to kill people, but to make it look like other people were the perpetrators.

The official count has Edwards killing five people from 1977 to 1996, but some experts believe he’s responsible for some of the biggest cases in American history, such as the Zodiac killings, Chandra Levy’s murder, and Jon Benet Ramsey’s death. 

Cameron notes that Edwards killed several people on the night of Halloween, and that’s when Halbach disappeared.

Edwards had also killed in Wisconsin before, and was living only an hour away from Avery at the time of the murder.

Edwards has a history of showing up at funerals and trials of his victims, and Cameron took a screenshot from the Netflix series that he says shows Cameron in the background.

Avery’s new lawyer Kathleen Zellner actually worked on a case where the alleged murderer was actually set up by Cameron. Ryan Ferguson spent nearly 10 years in jail before being freed. 

Cameron says the evidence he’s compiled proves that Avery is innocent. “Edwards is the killer of Teresa Halbach and set-up of Steve Avery and Brendan Dassey,” he proclaimed on his website

Edwards died in 2011 while in jail in Ohio.
