It looks as though hacktivist group Anonymous may not be going after Wisconsin law enforcement after all in the midst of huge media buzz for Netflix's Making a Murderer.
Over the past few days, a Twitter account called @OPAVERYDASSEY had posted about leaking documents as part of Anonymous' attempt to get to the truth of the Steven Avery case. However, well known Anonymous member @0hour1 recently denied their involvement with @OPAVERYDASSEY.
The @OPAVERYDASSEY Twitter account has yet to upload key evidence or truly corrupting documents and has since stated that Ghost Security will take over the investigation. And yet, @thetrueghostsec, the GhostSec Twitter account, has stated they have no association with the Avery case.
The Next Web, one of many sites to pick up the story of Anonymous getting involved with Avery's case, just posted an update on their piece that explains the confusion:
"It appears that the user or group behind the Twitter account @OPAVERYDASSEY misled followers about having secured documents pertaining to Steven Avery's case," they write. "Known Anonymous member account @0hour1 was reported to be associated with @OPAVERYDASSEY, but they have since dissociated themselves from it. We regret the error in confirming these details before publishing our story, and are attempting to verify more details and will update this post when we learn more."
Anonymous is a deliberately hidden organization, with many disparate members, so details on who is involved has always been hazy. It remains to be seen if the organization will ultimately pursue Avery's case as many Netflix users catch up with Making a Murderer and demand justice.
All 10 episodes of Making a Murderer are available to stream on Netflix now.
