Who Was Teresa Halbach?

Who Was Teresa Halbach?

Who was Teresa Halbach? I’ve always wondered what her life was like up until she was murdered but I could never find any collective information on her. We all saw her infamous video and read small tidbits about her but never really got to know who she was as a person.

Redditor angieb15 made a post which gives a lot of facts and observations about Teresa Halbach.

That pretty much gives us an idea and a look into her life. I know everybody wants to find out “Who killed Teresa Halbach?” and “Is Steven Avery guilty?” – but we also need to know who Teresa Halbach was to understand who she was as a person and by getting to know her as a person, we can be more motivated into finding the real answers and hopefully find the real murderer – no matter who it is.
