My Strange Text From Ryan

Facebook message from Ryan Hillegas to me
As soon as Ryan Hillegas’ very bizarre court testimony aroused my suspicions, I got on Facebook to see if I might be able to find him.  It didn’t take long!  I sent him a message thinking I would just be one of hundreds or thousands sending similar sentiments his way, so I didn’t even expect the message would be read let alone replied to.

  • To be honest, I think you are the one that send a strange message, not him. You don’t even know the guy, why do you go haress him like that?

  • There is not enough proof for the Avery's to be in jail. The right thing to do is have it go to federal court. It is literally insane how SO MANY RANDOM PEOPLE who have no connection to the case have this opinion that Ryan did it. It is unjust that no one else was even asked for an alibi! No way in hell is Wisconsin going to reopen this case, so my guess is that it will go to federal court. I really don't think these guys with IQs of 60 and 70 can cover up a murder scene so well. The proof of their innocence is shown. The cops didn't search the garage that well if dust from years ago lies on top of all the furniture. If they cleaned up the garage from blood, why did they not pick up the bullet shells? None of it makes sense and if you think this crime has been solved then you are biased.

  • I think all of this could be cleared up very quickly if Ryan Hillegas were to answer my list of growing questions. Right now the list is up to about 30. But I'd be happy with an alibi for October 31st, and the following couple of days. Seems like a sensible place to start since no seems to ever have bothered to ask.

  • 9 times out of 10 the perpetrator is someone who's being interviewed on tv – they love the attention, and full of their own superiority.
    They get away for so long but then the big mighty justice net does begin to close in and strangle the lies they have cast.

  • The media did weeks and weeks of speculation on both Steven and Brendan before their trials – ruining their chances to fair trials. It's called freedom of press and it's a blessing and curse. The Avery families were followed everywhere with cameras in their face. Daniel is writing a blog and making a few phone calls – put it in perspective…

  • Angry knows him…

  • At least he's asking questions and not planting evidence! Do it Daniel – bring them all down. The state of Wisconsin also tried to stop the documentary from getting out too – soooooo… being a vigilante seems to be the only thing getting any traction.

  • Um, no conspiracy theorist here, sir. I think I'm one of the few people who say it's not a conspiracy. I was making the point that an alert public can add important information to an investigation. It was only after the Unabomber's letters were published that he was caught. It was only after Oba Chandler's handwriting was displayed on billboards throughout the Tampa Bay area that he was caught. The information on the record in Gallery magazine had something to do with, as I recall, one of the officer's leaving his dictabelt on. I have no idea what the significance of this was, only that it was legit info. For the record, by the way, I believe that Oswald acted alone.

  • The point is that so many individuals "officially" involved have been proven to be incompetent. The Avery's need all the help they can get and I for one, and actually many, many others I know, are more than grateful Daniel is doing what he's doing.

    He's taking action. He's taking risks for something he believes in, in the name of justice. He's responsible for every action he takes and I'm glad he's doing it. I hope, twenty years from now the name 'Daniel Luke' will be synonymous with great investigative reporting, or with whatever alternative he chooses. He's shaking the bushes, maybe we'll see some rats come running out.

    Anyone that sees it differently needs to move on to a different documentary. A text message pales in comparison to what the Avery's have endured. Thank God someone completely unassociated with the Avery's is willing to risk his own safety and public reputation to take a stand for what's right. Anything less is a spectator and again in that case, move on to the next documentary because you will never truly empathize until something like this were to effect you directly.

    Just wanted to get my thoughts down but I am not anonymous. I am @JustinoMolinaro if anyone would like to release Daniel from some criticism and direct it towards me now. I'd like to let Daniel focus on his more important business than responding to every slap-dick comment posted here.

    Thanks Daniel!

    Important information about the Kennedy assassination was contained on a record in a porn magazine, so you never know.

  • My statement was intentionally vague. "Boy you sure did get away with it for a long time." That's hardly an accusation of murder. Maybe I meant that he got away with illegally snooping around on her computer. Just out of curiosity, why did you assume I meant murder?

  • Why do you seem so certain that he's innocent?

  • I'd like to stay away from ad hominem attacks, and I don't think that has anything to do with my insecurities. In fact, I am most secure when going to brickbats with someone in a comment section on the internet. My secret weapon? Being polite, and staying on topic. I believe people can behave in a civil fashion, and it's not too much to ask. For any comment section to be worth a darn, the moderator has to keep things on track like a talk show host or it really becomes a pig's breakfast. Now that you've expressed your opinion, I'd sincerely like to know what you care to add to the conversation?

  • Ryan please go

  • Travis — This is not a place to sling ad hominem insults. I don't appreciate being called assinine, and so on. This site is about Making a Murderer, and my suspicions about Ryan HIllegas. You've made your point. Now, let's get back to the matter at hand, shall we? Once again, please poke holes in my argument, not in the person who conceived of it. If that does not interest you, I respectfully ask to not make any more comments.

  • Duping delight. I was trying to think of that word. Perfect. Thank you. You know, accusing someone of starting a witch hunt is little different from accusing someone of murder. Moreover, no sooner do you upbraid me for suspecting Ryan, you immediately begin your own "witch hunt", if that's what you want to call it, by pointing the finger at Chuck and Earl. But hey, I'm not here to pick fights with the internet. I'm actually here to collect evidence. Maybe the text was a little over the top, but what's done is done. I"d just gotten through watching the whole thing and, like many Americans, was very upset. And I just couldn't get what I too saw as duping delight out of my head.

  • Isn't that funny how "Angry" chimed in?
    The thing about the documentary is that it was actual footage of the trial. Tell me how that was edited only to suit Netflix's needs and make Ryan out to look bad? It wasn't how it was. It was footage on how he reacted, it was footage on his answers. What he said! The answers came out of his mouth. It's crazy the ones who are quick to defend because it's either them behind another name, or someone who knows him. Oh well.
    There is a lot of explaining that needs to be done!

  • My opinion is almost the exact same as well. And there are hundreds already that are jumping on board thinking the exact same thing. He was too strange when up on the stand! His answers didn't make sense. To not even be investigated blows everyone's mind! What about those scratches on his hand he tried so hard to hide? Those are se serious claw marks.
    Hoping this opens the right peoples minds and this is looked into like it should've been years ago! Two innocent men are sitting behind bars and some sick fuck has been living a lie all these years!
    Karma will eventually catch up to who is responsible!
    My guess is..He is a "flight risk" at the moment….

  • It's disingenuous to suggest no one is allowed to point fingers. Are you writing similar messages to the by now legions of people accusing the sheriff's of corruption? Or how about the millions who now think that Ken Kratz is the biggest piece of trash who walked the earth? I could go on. If you want to dispute my logic, fine, but if you want to point the finger at me pointing the finger, that's whole different matter altogether.

  • Angry, (can I call you Angry for short?), if you know Ryan, tell him I am interested in finding answers to some of the questions that I have posted on this site. If you have any information yourself, I'm all ears.

  • I also interviewed the Avery family last night.

  • You actually texted the guy?! Wow, I'm sure glad there are people like you out there that seek the truth no matter how inconvenient. Good for you! Whether he did it or not, he should have been questioned as a suspect. Just the answers he gave in court were suspicious enough to have him arrested.
