Evans wrote the letter last summer and sent it to several media outlets, all of which chose not to report it. Record Advocate (formerly Rockford Advocate) released it last week.

Because Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey are both embroiled in high-profile post-conviction cases, and the documentary continues to shape opinions among millions of viewers, the public has a right to view the letter.
