The Wisconsin man was the subject of Netflix's hit documentary 'Making A Murderer'.

He was jailed for the killing of photographer Teresa Halbach in 2005 and has maintained his innocence since.

His nephew, Brendan Dassey, was also jailed for the crime.

He also maintains his innocence, with defence lawyers claiming he had been coerced by police into making a false confession.

Avery's new lawyer Kathleen Zellner has tweeted her followers following a recent prison visit to Avery, sharing a note he reportedly wrote for his followers.

It is dated January 29 and reads: "To my supporters. I want every forensic test possible done because I am innocent. Steven Avery".

Zellner captioned the photograph of the note, writing: "Third visit WCC: SA thrilled about chance of new forensic testing -- like innocent men always are [sic]."

The lawyer believes forensic testing is the key to proving Avery is innocent of the crime.
