Ken Kratz’s Preoccupation with Sweat

Photo montage of every time Ken Kratz says mentions Steven Avery's sweat

An alert viewer compiled a photo montage of all the times that Ken Kratz referred to Steven Aver’s sweat in a tone of complete disgust in an effort to make him appear as sub-human scum.  I noticed this too, and thought it spoke volumes about the level Kratz was willing to stoop to prejudice the public at large.  Though it may seem like a minor detail, even in these asides we see that Ken Kratz is dishonest and willing to make things up out of whole cloth.  How, for example, does Kratz know whether Steven Avery was ever sweating on any of the occasions he refers to Avery as being covered in sweat?  I don’t believe this is something he could have known, so what should we conclude about a prosecutor who is willing to make up false information?

I personally believe the courtroom is the last place to degrade something about someone’s personal appearance, and I believe to do so is to reveal something about a prosecutor’s ethics or lack thereof.

As one incident like this after another comes up to reveal the character of Ken Kratz, one thing I believe is important to keep in mind when thinking about both cases is to what degree the narrative was influenced by Ken Kratz.  For that matter, we also must keep in mind whenever we hear something parroted by Nancy Grace, or some other talking head that what they know of the “evidence” in the case has also largely been controlled by Kratz at this point.

Kratz has so far proved himself to be a PR genius because at this point I’m quite sure that a healthy percent of Americans, if not most, believe that Making A Murderer was slanted in favor of the defense.  Often, to support this claim, people will bring up one or more pieces of Ken Kratz’s excluded evidence without being aware that though Kratz continues to refer to “sweat” DNA, to name but one thing, as something that exists, it is, in reality something he invented.  He insists that the magic bullet that was found in the garage had Teresa Halbach’s blood DNA on it, and that the bullet could only have come from the gun Steven Avery had hanging over his bed.  Neither statement is true, according to many other sources.

Yet, it is Ken Kratz, and others who are willing to affirm Steven Avery’s guilt who have been most vocal, and who have gotten the lion’s share of the media attention so far.  Ken Kratz has been given a giant megaphone to continually repeat a pack of lies, when it comes right down to it, and our media is just too damn lazy to validate or debunk any of his claims.  Either that, or they relish the ambiguity fearing that adding clarity to the matter would prematurely end a story that hasn’t been fully cashed out yet.






  • EDTA is an additive to blood vials to keep it from clotting. That’s how it fits in this case. Although you may have found all these other uses, they aren’t relevant for the Avery case in any way.

  • Ken Kratz is a grown man on the downward-slope of middle-aged, yet has the oddly seductive voice of a 60-something church lady (a mustachioed church lady, no less).

    Perhaps he finds man-sweat erotic — in the same way he seems to enjoy cajoling/bullhying/invitiing domestic violence victims to “spoil” him and “live on the edge”??

  • EXTREME sweat test: is all I can find, “laugh as you view this video”. Please post this sweat test for the viewing audience.

    Your blunt refined point of view with Ken Kratz “sweat DNA was so high-class.” Your terminology is so well spoken, but your facts are [so accurate]. There is no such thing as DNA sweat test. Another Mother Goose Story intended to deceive. Would this be this be considered “perjury evidence” Ken Kratz can use to show as HERE is “part of his missing evidence.” With his “Alice in Wonderland” pathological lies. There is no such thing as sweat DNA, so scratch this. So this is my research on “Sweat Test” and “EDTA”, hope this is helpful…

    I found on YouTube “there is no such thing” as [EDTA DNA Blood Testing] is this another one of Ken Kratz “Mother Goose stories” that is false and that is why they couldn’t find any in the blood DNA? This is all I found on EDTA and “overexerted myself doing this”. EDTA is used for various medical treatments, (two) being lead poisoning and brain damage. Maybe Ken [that prize] has a prescription of EDTA and this is why he thought of this theory. I will be honest a Narcissist such as Ken Kratz, they will lie to the Archbishop, and their own mother, including lying about what they had for lunch.

    It depends on what level of Narcissism Ken Kratz has. I would assume he has the most severe condition “Malignant”, there are 3 different TOXIC levels. I know I was married to one that was Malignant, and they are TOXIC especially when it comes to the judicial system they are going to prevail no matter what …But how many others on the [force has these same traits], it seemed like they all thought they were [above the law], and made up their own Manitowoc County laws as they went along. However, they ALL know its never considered ANY crime, what they have done, “until they are turned in and caught.” They never dreamed in a million years they would be facing these challenges that are just beginning for them. Now once again I would assume the Avery and Dassey lives, are endangered inside the prison. Manitowoc County, or Ken the PRIZE {who would have him yuck} they are not going to let this slide either, of being EXPOSED…

    EDTA is a prescription medicine, given by injection into the vein (intravenously) or into the muscle (intramuscularly). Intravenous EDTA is used to treat lead poisoning and brain damage caused by lead poisoning; to evaluate a patient’s response to therapy for suspected lead poisoning; to treat poisonings by radioactive materials such as plutonium, thorium, uranium, and strontium; for removing copper in patients with Wilson’s disease; and for treating high levels of calcium.

    EDTA is also used intravenously for heart and blood vessel conditions including irregular heartbeat due to exposure to chemicals called cardiac glycosides, “hardening of the arteries” (atherosclerosis), chest pain (angina), high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and blood circulation problems such as intermittent claudication and Raynaud’s syndrome.

    Other intravenous uses include treatment of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, an eye condition called macular degeneration, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and skin conditions including scleroderma and psoriasis.

    EDTA is also used intramuscularly for lead poisoning and related brain damage.

    EDTA is sometimes used as an ointment for skin irritations produced by metals such as chromium, nickel, and copper.

    Eye drops containing EDTA are used to treat calcium deposits in the eye.

    In foods, EDTA bound to iron is used to “fortify” grain-based products such as breakfast cereals and cereal bars. EDTA is also used in calcium and sodium compounds to preserve food; and to promote the color, texture, and flavor of food.

    In manufacturing, EDTA is used in calcium and sodium compounds to improve stability in pharmaceutical products, detergents, liquid soaps, shampoos, agricultural chemical sprays, oil emulsion devices, contact lens cleaners and cosmetics. It is also used in certain blood collection tubes used by medical laboratories.

    How does it work?

    EDTA is a chemical that binds and holds on to (chelates) minerals and metals such as chromium, iron, lead, mercury, copper, aluminum, nickel, zinc, calcium, cobalt, manganese, and magnesium. When they are bound, they can’t have any effects on the body and they are removed from the body.
