Real Crime - - Contents - Ben biggs Ed­i­tor

nearly three years on from the Net­flix true crime sen­sa­tion that was Mak­ing A Mur­derer, the launch of a binge­wor­thy sea­son 2 re­turns the spot­light to the Steven Av­ery and Bren­dan Dassey mur­der case. Av­ery’s hot­shot new pro bono lawyer, Kath­leen Zell­ner, sys­tem­at­i­cally tears into the pros­e­cu­tion’s mur­der case that saw both Av­ery and his nephew put away for life. Orig­i­nal trial pros­e­cu­tor Ken Kratz re­fused to take part in the new se­ries, so in this fi­nal is­sue of Real Crime, we’ve got an ex­clu­sive with the lawyer and for­mer district at­tor­ney of Calumet County. On page 14, Ken Kratz talks about the in­con­sis­ten­cies Zell­ner finds in the ev­i­dence, what Net­flix didn’t show you, and Kratz’s thoughts on the Av­ery case now. Un­for­tu­nately, you did read right: this is the last is­sue of Real Crime mag­a­zine. I’m go­ing to say, no tongue- incheek, that it’s a crime that a fresh and dy­namic ti­tle like this is be­ing killed off, but that’s the cut­throat re­al­ity of pub­lish­ing to­day. Thank you all for read­ing, and en­joy the is­sue.
