YES, THIS POST INCLUDES MAKING A MURDERER SPOILERS. IT’S ALSO ABOUT A DOCUMENTARY DEPICTING EVENTS FROM 10 YEARS AGO. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Special prosecutor Ken Kratz, with his giant head and creepy lady voice, who pursued a weak case against Steven Avery and an even weaker one against Avery’s nephew Brendan Dassey, probably came out looking the worst in Making A Murderer (and is currently getting plenty of grief for it). So it’s not surprising that he would take issue with the documentary series. He spoke to People yesterday, claiming filmmakers Laura Ricciardi and Moira Demos left out key pieces of evidence.

“You don’t want to muddy up a perfectly good conspiracy movie with what actually happened,” Kratz tells PEOPLE by email, “and certainly not provide the audience with the evidence the jury considered to reject that claim.”

As to what that evidence might be, he presents a theory that Steven Avery “targeted” photographer Teresa Halbach, who disappeared October 31 after being last seen taking photographs of a van on Steven Avery’s property.
