On the Netflix documentary series about his conviction, Avery continues to proclaim to the world that police framed him for the strangling of Halbach. The Midwest monster’s nephew, Brendan Dassey, was also convicted of murder and remains in jail.
Years prior to his life sentence for Halbach’s murder, Avery served nearly 20 years for a rape he did not commit. Following the wrongful conviction, Avery threatened to kill his then-wife, Lori Mathiesen, behind bars, according to letters she gave to police. In the first letter, shown here, Avery scribbled in giant letters, “I will get you when I’m out.”
The horrific threats continued in a second written note, shown here, as he addresses Mathiesen as his “honey” before repeatedly threatening to murder her. “I will kill you Ha. Ha.,” Avery penned in the letter. “I’ll use the letters and the pictures against you.”
Avery sprinkled in backhanded compliments to his ex-wife in the handwritten notes, alongside terrifying threats of violence. “I love you but you should love me to (sic),” Avery scribbled. He added: “If you don’t brang (sic) up my kids I will kill you.”
Mathiesen and Avery share four children together. They were married for six years before divorcing in 1988.
