‘Making a Murderer’ Attorneys’ Tour Coming to Texas
The defense team featured on the Netflix series Making a Murderer, Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, are coming to Texas as part of a tour in which they'll engage in conversation about the case featured on the series, as well as discuss the broader topic of the American criminal justice system.
Strang and Buting shot to stardom after the release of the original Netflix series in Decembers. They both worked as defense attorneys on the trial of Steven Avery, who was charged, and convicted, in the murder of Teresa Halbach.
Avery was exonerated after being wrongly imprisoned for 18 years in connection with an unrelated earlier crime it turns out he didn't commit, only to end up behind bars in connection with Halbach's murder shortly after his first release.
The documentary followed Avery's case, raising doubts over whether Avery really is guilty in the murder.
According to Gothamist, Strang and Buting's tour will make its way across the U.S., with Texas stops in Dallas, Houston and Austin. Each stop of the tour will feature a Q&A session, during which audience members can ask questions directly of the attorneys who defended Avery in the murder trial.
