Interview Video[32]


The most important thing to notice while listening to these interviews is how much is being fed to Brendan by the investigators. Listen to how many times they tell him his is lying or that he isn’t doing the right thing. Listen to the suggestive wording they use.

I understand that investigators need to use some sort of technique to get a person to talk, but these investigators went a little too far, IMHO.

After watching Brendan’s interviews, I don’t know how anybody could find him guilty of murdering Teresa Halbach.
