robin. >> thank you, linsey. more from dan abrams and nancy grace. joining us from atlanta. good to have you both here with us. you both have gone over the evidence and you feel that avery is guilty. but nancy, what do you make of the letter he recently wrote? >> well, i'm not surprised about the letter and i find it interesting that he's actually quoting under the bible. he'll be set free by the truth. the truth in my mind is what convicted to start with. what i found to be the most compelling evidence of all, other than teresa halbach's bones, all of them, 270-plus bones in his fire pit, burned within the steel raid yells of a tire, that was burned there. it's called sweat dna. steven avery's sweat dna --
there's no dna in sweat. but, blood cells, skin cells come out in your sweat and that's under her hood latch, there's no known way to extract sweat from a human, like -- you can force someone to give their blood, their hair, their fingerprints, they're walking their speech, but not their sweat. her sweat is under her car hood. >> you feel that the evidence is overwhelming. dan, we heard from linsey's report, he has a new lawyer. >> she'll have to have something more than just this witness now is re-evaluating this juror, is now rethinking to get a new trial, remember this has worked its way up through the wisconsin courts already. the wisconsin supreme court has already heard this and rejected this. she'll need something new that
can literally prove to some degree by convincing evidence that either the ed was planted or that someone else did it. and that's not going to be easy when you got all of this evidence. so, one new question about a police officer isn't going to be enough to get him a new trial. she'll literally need a convincing piece of evidence. >> he's right. he's right. that's been argued so many times, newly-discovered evidence. another prong to newly-discovered evidence it could not have been discoverable at the time of the trial. it has to be new. dan was correctly describing the juror rethinking, while another juror has told us that they slept like a quote, baby, the night that steven avery was convicted and if he got out and they would be quote sick. i take offense with steven avery jumping up from behind bars and saying she was paid to say he was a monster.
