Throughout the entire series there are questions about the guilt and possible set-up of Wisconsin man Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey for the murder of young photographer Teresa Halbach.

The series also raises questions about the flaws in the American justice system.

However, the question on plenty of Irish viewers minds is why was a hurling statue featured in episode five?

The statue is displayed on a cabinet in defence lawyer Dean Strang's office so the team at the Daily Edge reached out to him to get to the bottom of the speculation.

"It is a hurling statue, not a trophy. I have a dear friend, a wonderful criminal defence lawyer in Milwaukee who is a first-generation Irish American from the south side of Chicago. He gave it to me some years ago as a gift. I treasure it, as I do his friendship."

So there you have it.... that's one less mystery to worry about.
