The attention focused on the Netflix docu-series "Making a Murderer" has caused an outpouring of support for its subject, and a strong reaction from the man who sent him to prison.
An online petition calling for a pardon of convicted murderer Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey -- also in prison for being a party to murder, sexual assault and mutilating a corpse -- has tallied more than 249,000 signatures.
A website has been reportedly set up by the family with the help of the hacker group Anonymous, to allow people to donate money to their legal fund. So far, the family has reportedly collected $2,100 raised though the site and says an additional $1,200 has been sent to their home.
TMZ reports the money will be used for legal fees and a private investigator.
But Ken Kratz, who prosecuted Avery, is fighting back with what he says is evidence that the Netflix docu-series ignored.
