Lawyer: Steven Avery has an 'airtight alibi'
Since she began representing Steven Avery, Kathleen Zellner hasn't been shy about using Twitter to share her theories and feelings about her client's conviction in the 2005 murder of photographer Teresa Halbach.
Sunday's tweet, though, took her efforts to a new level.
The suburban Chicago attorney declared that cellphone tower records "provide airtight alibi for" Avery: "She left property he didn't."
The tweet seems to say that Halbach's phone was used after her visit to Avery's Manitowoc County auto-salvage yard, where she had gone to photograph a car that Avery said he wanted to list for sale.
Cell-tower records we've seen in other cases can be used to show a user's movement as his or her phone uses different towers as the person drives through an area. What they don't necessarily show is who was using the phone at the time.
As of Monday morning, Zellner had not elaborated about why she believes the evidence equates to an airtight alibi.
