How Ryan Came to Be My Primary Suspect
I had to watch Making A Murderer twice before zeroing in on a particular person. I figured it out when I realized Ryan Hillegas was lying about the username. He slipped up. He said something like “I made up a username that worked”. It was all over after that because I knew he was lying. Any ole username isn’t just going to work. It can only be one user name. So I started thinking about, “Well, what if he had had the logins all along”. Then it was like “holy shit” he knew where she was every minute of almost every day practically and this had probably been going on for years.
But there was one last problem I simply couldn’t figure out, and that was the blood. If the blood had come from the the vial from 1985 held in the evidence room at the sheriff’s office, that would almost have to mean a sheriff, more than one sheriff, maybe the entire sheriff’s department took out Teresa Halbach, and then planted evidence to make it look like Steven Avery did it.
But that didn’t make much sense exactly for the reason Kenny Petersen said. Why not just kill Steven Avery? That would be a whole lot simpler.
But I kept going back to that damn blood! Then it finally hit me when I started looking at Ryan Hillegas, and discovered he had worked as an RN at the time. If so, maybe he could have had access to a vial of Steven Avery’s blood. If so, this would have solved a lot of problems in understanding how the murder of Teresa Halbach and it’s aftermath took place.
There was one final piece though. It had only barely registered that Teresa had been out to the property many, many times. Before I had this fact squarely in my head, the thing that bothered me was the fact that the crime seemed too well planned for it to be more or less spur of the moment. I guess it could have been, but that part didn’t seem to fit nicely. But when I realized Teresa had been out there something like 12 times, I realized that Ryan had months and months to plan this whole thing. He knew she’d eventually be out there again, and as long as he had access to private information, he could just wait for the right time. Then I was like damn, I gotta tell the world before people start showing up in Wisconsin with pitchforks and lord knows what all, lol! Everything PERFECTLY fit once I started looking very closely at Ryan Hillegas.
