Did Teresa Halbach Have Skeletons In Her Closet?
Apparently Steven Avery’s defense was going to raise some points about Teresa Halbach maybe having some skeletons in her closet from the past.
Redditor Classic_Griswald was going through the court transcripts and came across an objection to evidence suggesting Teresa Halbach was a “religious girl”:
I don’t mean to jump into a salacious headline, but I’m not really sure how else to word it. I was going over the defences arguments over evidence introduced by the prosecution, and it mentions the towel incident, which it objected to and was not allowed. But it also states it objected to:
Teresa was “a religious girl, who demonstrated efforts toward remaining safe from harm”
Object to evidence that Ms. Halbach was “a religious girl, who demonstrated efforts toward. remaining safe from harm.” wrs. srar. ss 904.01 .904.02, 906.1,0. Further, defense counsel already has alerted the prosecution privately that any effort to offer testimony in this area will ‘open the door’ to other evidence that the defense provisionally has agreed not to offer or pursue at trial. The prosecution knows what evidence this is, and it can be shared with the Court in chambers if the prosecution in fact wishes to pursue this line of evidence.
The prosecution vs defence trial system is very adversarial. But it’s a gentleman’s match in the end. One side says “we wont do this if you don’t say that” etc. Or, like poker, they might be holding various cards, no one wants to put a certain card down, because it limits the play on the river.
Okay, enough bad analogies for me today.
My point though, is that I believe the defence had something, which was in direct opposition to being “a religious girl who demonstrated efforts toward remaining safe from harm” whatever the hell that is supposed to mean (Kratz).
It’s something they were both aware of. Something discussed. And also, really not sure how else to describe it other than ‘dirt’. Perhaps, unfavourable. Although, it doesn’t necessarily have to be, just something polar opposite to the god statement.
What do you think about that? Do you think she had some skeletons in her closet that the prosecution didn’t want let out of the bag?
I understand everybody has some kind of skeletons in their closet (Steven Avery sure does) but if she did have some questionable skeletons in her closet, they may or may not have anything to do with the case. It’s interesting to see how they wanted to talk about it behind closed door and not mention it in the court document.
It gets more and more interesting as the days go on!
