"But Findley said he has talked recently with Avery's attorneys, Dean Strang and Jerome Buting, and noted the innocence project could revisit Avery's case in the future, should new evidence come to light."

Thank God I'm not someone with an IQ of 73 who the investigators could goad into false statements.  They never let up on that kid.  No lawyer present at any time. Sometimes people confess to a crime they didn't commit just to get the investigators off of their backs.
