Making a Murderer Timeline: Everything That's Happened Since Season One

When Making a Murderer debuted on Netflix in December 2015, the world at large knew little or nothing about the murder of 25-year-old Wisconsin photographer Teresa Halbach. Within weeks, the people accused of killing her — Steven Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey — were the subject of worldwide discussion. ... More »

'Making a Murderer Part 2' review: Netflix series is true crime over a long time
When it premiered in December 2015, Making a Murderer was a pop-culture hit for two reasons: It coincided with peak interest in the true-crime genre, and its presence on Netflix enabled interested viewers to binge deep into a story that had many sobering Easter eggs of information. It was the story of the 2005 murder of Teresa Halbach; two men who lived in Manitowoc County, Wis. — Steven Avery and his nephew Brendan Dassey — were arrested for the crime and convicted. ...

Afghanistan in shock after death of powerful police commander
U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said it was too soon to say if the death of Gen. Abdul Razeq, the police commander in southern Kandahar, would hurt voter turnout, but added that the U.S. military's mission was unaltered. "We need to find who's done this," Mattis told reporters traveling with him in the southeast Asian city-state of Singapore. "But right now, we are going toward the election and we will continue to defend the Afghan people." Razeq, a survivor of numerous previous attacks, was killed outside the governor's office in the southern province on Thursday, when a bodyguard opened fire on a group of officials as they left a meeting.
