The report names a number of evidence that Avery’s camp want reconsidered. Among the evidence requested are significant parts of Halbach’s RAV4.
The Wrap details that the car key is a particularly contested piece of evidence given the nature of how it was found. Manitowoc County officers Andrew Colborn and James Lenk located the evidence in Avery’s bedroom. Tests later revealed that Avery’s DNA on it.
With regard to this, The Wrap details that the motion seeks to determine the source of DNA found on the key. If tests reveal that the DNA comes from saliva, it will debunk the State’s claim that Avery’s blood covered the evidence.
Furthermore, The Wrap reports that Colborn’s and Lenk’s fingerprints are subject for comparison to unidentified ones found in Halbach’s car. If tests returns a match, the claim on planted evidence by Avery’s camp gathers solid backing.
