Manitowoc Police Address “Making a Murderer”-Related Calls

Manitowoc Police are again working to differentiate
themselves from the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Office – following the release
of “Making a Murderer: Part 2”. 

The department reports an influx of phone
calls, emails, and messages regarding the Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey
murder case – but police say the people commenting on the case are voicing
opinions to the wrong agency. A Facebook post from the department points out
that all of the cases and incidents happened in Manitowoc County,
outside of the city, and were in the jurisdiction of the Sheriff’s Office. 

A
judge rejected Avery’s latest motion for a new trial back in December, and the
US Supreme Court decided not to hear Dassey’s case back in June.
