Exclusive Sensational Information About Kathleen Zellner’s Investigation???
The mystery commenter leaves the following commenter today backing off of what he or she had earlier implied or stated, but still maintaining access to inside information:
I would caution readers of this site not to read too much into my comment. I do not speak for Kathleen Zellner or her team, as I originally stated. When I refer to “us” I am not referring to KZ or any of the team working under her, but instead, I am referring to the nonpublic group I am involved with. This is not a “bombshell” comment. If one were to read Miss Zellner’s Twitter comments there is information that, in my opinion, does fall under the characterization of “bombshell”. The source group of individuals that I associate with, the positions we hold or the origin of information used to form our conclusions are not something we would discuss. My comment is a combination of my personal opinion, as well as, information and conclusions we are aware of or have reached based on the insight we are fortunate to have. Yes, we do have information that is not for public consumption, which is why I refer to what is contained in my comment as “what I can tell you”. This is simply an indication of the existence of limits as it pertains to what I and/or we are willing to say. “Involved within the inner mechanisms of the case” would be inaccurate.
Yesterday, someone posting anonymously, but claiming to be close to the Kathleen Zellner and her team left a highly intriguing, albeit lengthy message, which, if authentic, adds new information to the public repository of information about the progress and direction of Zellner’s investigation.
Here are a few tantalizing excerpts from the message:
I wish I could speak for the entire team working under KZ, as I am aware that all agree with you, however, it is not my place to do so. What I can tell you is this; Motions will not be filed on behalf of either appellant until the exculpatory evidence can be presented in conjunction with conclusive inculpatory evidence. The goal is not limited to clearing them but rather to conclusively demonstrate who is responsible. This is already clear to us.
For those who feed on speculation I can tell you that those who will be implicated and charged do indeed appear in the Netflix presentation. Speculation concerning a serial killer or disc jockey is not valid with regards to the cause of Theresa’s death. The guilty parties are living their lives large and small but they are (and should be) worried.
This is the message in full:
Daniel you have a voice. It is not meant for those who would discount you for past actions, but instead, for offering your interpretation and opinions with an insight that most others perhaps do not have. Do not discount yourself. You need not be replaced. On a multitude of commentary site sections people argue their viewpoints on the Avery case in every manner from educated to ignorance. This is human nature. You call out Mr. Kratz and this is absolutely deserved. This man should never have held a public office. There is no doubt that he is culpable in the miscarriage of justice in both trials concerning the death of Theresa Halbach. I wish I could speak for the entire team working under KZ, as I am aware that all agree with you, however, it is not my place to do so. What I can tell you is this; Motions will not be filed on behalf of either appellant until the exculpatory evidence can be presented in conjunction with conclusive inculpatory evidence. The goal is not limited to clearing them but rather to conclusively demonstrate who is responsible. This is already clear to us. It is now a matter developing the evidence, not the least of which includes the purchase of an identical vehicle to that of the victim. I can tell you that all the evidence needed has been obtained. For those who feed on speculation I can tell you that those who will be implicated and charged do indeed appear in the Netflix presentation. Speculation concerning a serial killer or disc jockey is not valid with regards to the cause of Theresa’s death. The guilty parties are living their lives large and small but they are (and should be) worried. By now, chain of evidence procedure by nature has revealed itself to those being investigated. I am telling you what I can. There were a great deal of smoke and mirrors during the investigations and prosecutions and unfortunately, much of this was brought on by the original bias of some members of the Manitowac County Sheriff’s Department. Once Steven’s original conviction was overturned there was no way for Manitowac to be effective in any future criminal proceeding and this has fed the fires to the point of misleading public speculation. What the public does not know is that bias was also injected upon both Steven and Theresa by members of the Calumet County Sheriff’s Department and Prosecutor’s Office during the investigation and prosecutions surrounding her death. There are those who believe law enforcement members are responsible for Theresa’s death and this too is not valid. When the time comes to reveal the truth there will be members of the general public who will not want to accept it. There will be families shattered by the revelation of the guilty but we must not lose sight of the fact that no one will be able to make the Avery family and relatives whole again. In addition, the bias against them will go on just as it has for years as a result of the local public’s view of their place in society and the legitimate misdeeds of Steven and other members of the family. It is easy to point the finger at those who are different or who have misstepped societies expectations. It is much harder to remain objective until all the facts can be revealed. The mishandling of Theresa’s disappearance and murder when combined with law enforcement mistrust and bias inflated by publicity allowed intelligent guilty parties to take advantage of the dynamics of the situation and operate all but unnoticed. If public law enforcement suspicion and the effects of previous prosecutorial misconduct were to have been removed during the period when Theresa went missing and was then discovered the guilty parties would have been easily identified. In fact, they may not have been able to carry out the murder at all. The killers played right into the hands of law enforcement bias of the Averys and the public perception of mistrust of law enforcement. In these two Wisconsin counties members of those charged with the caricature of justice have indeed tainted it. Sadly, the two counties and the State of Wisconsin are not alone. Although the justice system in the United States is among the best this world has to offer it is an unfortunate fact of life that human error and malice can never be completely removed. Those who do taint our system from a position of malice should face severe punishment as a deterrent for all who hold positions of power. In the case of Mr. Kratz it is a human defect that rendered him incapable of performing his job. He, most likely, was ill enough to not see what he had become. He should still be held accountable, as should the others who not only failed the Averys but the collective public they were supposed to have served.
I responded to the anonymous poster (with the sobriquet of TAR): [I begin by quoting a statement written by the anonymous comment leaver…
“I wish I could speak for the entire team working under KZ, as I am aware that all agree with you, however, it is not my place to do so. What I can tell you is this; Motions will not be filed on behalf of either appellant until the exculpatory evidence can be presented in conjunction with conclusive inculpatory evidence.”
So you have inside information? And you’re AWARE that the entire KZ team agrees with me? Very interesting.The anonymous poster then left another message today in response to my questions about his statements:
Explaining who I am or what I do can only serve to detract from the issue at hand. I chose to comment based on your passion Daniel and commitment to this cause. You have done well and I sincerely hope you continue. On a personal level I was or am very much like you in some regards. My passions drove me to excel at the risk of being viewed as crossing the line by some, repeatedly. I believe you have a righteousness about how you handle yourself. The trick is to keep yourself in check. I know this is not always an easy thing to do. I have lived like this for a great deal of time. The more intelligent and/or talented, the more screws tend to come loose at times. Sound familiar? I wish you well and I know you are on the right track. BTW moving across the country to follow the Avery pursuit and having contact with principal players wins you a federal file, so be aware of that. As far as inside info is concerned I can neither confirm nor deny, but you know how that goes. Believe in yourself and you can make a difference.
