In Episode 6 of “Convicting a Murderer,” Candace Owens shreds the narrative surrounding the suspicious discovery of the RAV4 key in Steven Avery’s bedroom. 

The episode, titled “The Key & the License Plate Call,” was released Thursday and features more details surrounding the key to Teresa Halbach’s vehicle being found by Manitowoc County law enforcement officers that many people allege was planted in Avery’s bedroom by police. In the episode, Owens also looks into editing choices made by the filmmakers of the hit Netflix docuseries “Making a Murderer.” 

“After ‘Making a Murderer,’ the filmmakers were questioned about some of their editing choices by several news outlets,” Owens says in the episode. “They responded typically the same way: That those questioning them simply misunderstood their intentions or thought that they knew more than they really did. But that still doesn’t explain why they omitted some of the most important evidence.”

In episode 6, viewers will find answers to key questions raised by “Making a Murderer,” such as how the RAV4 key was found in Avery’s trailer and why Halbach’s DNA wasn’t found on the RAV4 key. 

“The key was absolutely the biggest piece of evidence that viewers to this day believe was planted. Lt. Lenk and Sgt. Colborn were just in Avery’s bedroom the prior Saturday night and they didn’t see the key in that cabinet. And they were also in Avery’s trailer on other occasions and still somehow missed it,” Owens says. “The key, therefore, became this huge conspiracy theory.”

“Convicting a Murderer” pulls back the curtain on what viewers missed in “Making a Murderer.” The 10-episode series contains exclusive interviews with subjects not included in the Netflix show, including law enforcement officers, family members, and fans-turned-investigators whose lives have been profoundly impacted by the case.

The Daily Wire series hit the #1 spot on Rotten Tomatoes’ “Best Documentary TV Shows” list last week, where it still stands. “Convicting a Murderer” is now the most popular documentary TV show, sitting ahead of FX’s “Welcome to Wrexham” and Apple TV’s “The Super Models.”


Coming Up

Next Thursday, DailyWire+ will release episode 7, titled “The Vial of Blood,” where Owens will investigate one of the biggest bombshells in “Making a Murderer.” The next episode will also examine details of Brendan Dassey’s disturbing bombshell confession to investigators while Halbach was still considered a “missing person.” 

“It is so important to stress that prior to this date of February 27th, the police did not have Brendan Dassey on their radar at all. … Now they’re talking to him and he’s saying things about a golf cart, he’s talking about a bonfire that he had with his uncle Steven. He’s talking about seeing Teresa Halbach’s toes and belly and forehead in the fire,” Owens says. “I mean, this was a major breakthrough in the case.”
