A Dr. Phil Exclusive: ‘Making A Murderer’ Convicted Killer Steven Avery And His New Fiancee, Lynn Hartman, Speak Out

Convicted killer Steven Avery’s new fiancée, Lynn Hartman, and, in a surprise phone call to her, Steven Avery himself, speak out and answer questions about their engagement and new details surrounding Avery’s infamous case that was exposed in the Netflix documentary “Making A Murderer.” In her first sit-down interview, airing Monday, October 3 and Tuesday, October 4, Hartman describes to Dr. Phil how she found true love with one of America’s most notorious convicted killers.

“The first time he told me he loved me was the first time we spoke on the phone,” says Hartman, a legal secretary who says she began writing Avery earlier this year and met him face to face two weeks ago.

Avery, who was convicted in 2007 for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach and is currently serving life in prison at the Waupun Correctional Institute in Wisconsin, calls Hartman from prison in what turns out to be his first television interview since the documentary was released.

“I haven’t been in love my whole life. It’s not the same as the others. Everything is all different with her,” Avery says of Hartman. He also discusses their pending nuptials, his infamy and his hope that actor Brad Pitt will portray him in a film about his life.

Asked about a possible wedding date to his fiancée, Avery says, “I want to wait until I’m out and I don’t think that’ll be too long; right around the corner.”

Avery’s nephew Brendan Dassey was also convicted in Halbach’s murder and after the release of the documentary in December 2015, hundreds of thousands of outraged viewers questioned both men’s convictions. Dassey recently had his conviction overturned, and Avery, who maintains his innocence, tells Dr. Phil, “The truth is coming out and sooner or later, all the truth will come out.”

Woman Says: ‘Homelessness Is Affecting Our Son In A Very Negative Way’

Nick is a 21-year-old former honor student and college hockey player who quit school and abruptly moved to California to pursue his dream of becoming a rap star. He says he’s been living on the streets of Los Angeles for a little more than three months.

Nick’s parents, Jennifer and Nick Sr., say their son has always been impulsive, but they never expected him to end up homeless.

“He just walked out the door. He had no I.D., no money – he didn’t even bring a phone,” says Nick’s mom, Jennifer. “Homelessness is affecting our son in a very negative way.”

Nick’s father says the family is trying to convince him to get off the streets. “We’re trying to help him understand; it’s not a good thing – the streets are dangerous – it’s just not a healthy way to live.”

His parents claim the months leading up to Nick’s sudden departure were full of bizarre and unexpected behavior.
“A few months ago, I think Nicholas had a psychotic break,” says Jennifer. “He said that the CIA were going to get him.” Jennifer says she and her husband suspect Nick’s recent behaviors may be related to multiple concussions he received over the years while playing hockey.

Nick, who admits to being diagnosed with a major depressive disorder, says he’s in survival mode and doing fine. “I love the rush of trying to survive. I truly realize how keen my survival instinct really is.” The aspiring rapper says he is happier than he’s ever been.

“My mom enables him in a lot of ways because they’re totally codependent,” says Jennifer. “It seems to be a vicious cycle – he relies on her – she sends him the money. If she doesn’t send him the money, then he makes her feel guilty. “

Joselyn claims that throughout her childhood, she and her younger brother suffered beatings at the hands of their mother, Aaliyah. And, she says that she believes her mother’s severe abuse contributed to her brother stabbing their grandmother to death.

Woman Claims Mom’s Abuse Made Brother ‘Snap’ And Murder Grandma

Joselyn claims growing up she and her brother were severely abused by their mother, Aaliyah. She says she remembers her mother’s “unpredictable” behavior from as early as 4 years old, which she says included her mother punching her in the head, cutting her hair and puncturing her skin and beatings with a belt.

Joselyn says after a huge fight with her mother at 15, she moved out of the house, leaving her brother, she claims, to experience the “full brunt” of their mother’s “rage,” which Joselyn says she believes may have contributed to her brother’s actions.

“When my brother finally did move out, that was his breaking point. My brother couldn’t take my mom’s abuse anymore. The way my mom treated him, it definitely caused him to snap,” Joselyn says.

“I believe that my mother’s murder could have been prevented had the adults communicated with each other,” says Aaliyah who claims she’s been ostracized from her family. “If I had had any say about it, I would have never put my son in my mother’s home, due to what I have experienced.”

Joselyn’s 17-year-old brother, Andrew, stabbed his grandmother, with whom he was living, 15-17 times, killing her.

In the video above, Aaliyah confronts her daughter about her accusations.

“You were not in our home, and you didn’t talk to us. And any time that you came back to Hawaii, you were so volatile and you carried all of this with you,” Aaliyah says. “How many times can I cry? How many times can I tell you, ‘I’m sorry’? I’ve paid your rent — I have done everything that I possibly can, Joselyn. What is it that you want from me to be able to move on past this? Or are you going to hold on to this like I did my mom?”

Woman Who Admits Using Corporal Punishment Complains Daughter Resents Her

Aaliyah says that becoming a mother at 17 was a challenge and that she raised her kids the only way she knew how, with corporal punishment.

“I relied on corporal punishment because that was how I was raised. Corporal punishment to me was disciplining your child with a belt, or with your hand or with a switch,” Aaliyah says, admitting that she beat her oldest child, Joselyn.

Joselyn says that she can remember her mother abusing her as early as 4 years old when she claims her mother kicked her in the face, a claim Aaliyah firmly denies. She claims the abuse got worse as she got older and culminated in a fight when Joselyn was a freshman, when she claims Aaliyah was drunk, a claim Aaliyah also denies, and cut off Joselyn’s hair and made her look in the mirror and tell herself how ugly she was.

Aaliyah says she now realizes that the “punishment didn’t always fit the crime.” She says she’s changed her ways and wants Joselyn to ‘get over it.’

“I have tried to apologize to my daughter immensely,” Aaliyah says. “She holds so much resentment and hurt towards me that she’s not able to let it go no matter what I do. I don’t feel that her childhood was horrible but that’s not for me to say; that’s for her to say because I’m sure that my mother thought that I had a good childhood, and that wasn’t the case.”

Young Woman Describes Abuse She Says She Faced At Hands Of Her Mother

Joselyn says when she was growing up, her mother, Aaliyah, used corporal punishment to discipline her and her younger brother. The 22-year-old says she remembers her mom’s “unpredictable and abusive” behavior starting when she was a toddler.

“My earliest memory of abuse was when I was 4 years old. My mom had locked me in my room and when I was trying to get out, she kicked me in my face,” claims Joselyn.

Joselyn says when she was 7, her mother punched her in the face and her ring left a knot in her forehead. And she recalls another alleged incident when she was in the fifth grade and her mother hit her with a belt and the buckle struck her eye.

“When she gets like that, she blacks out and she just kept hitting me and punching me,” Joselyn says of the belt incident. “There were a lot of moments where I felt she really even maybe could have killed me.”

Joselyn claims the abuse got worse as she got older.

“In eighth grade, I came home with a progress report that said I was failing. My mother started to yell and beat me, grab my hair, smack me, punch me, hit me with a belt, and then she started pouring a bottle of hot sauce down my throat,” claims Joselyn. “One night when I was a freshman in high school, me and my mom had got in a fight. My mom was drunk and she took some scissors and started chopping my hair off. My neck was bleeding. When she was done cutting my hair, the top was completely gone. It was like a 4-year-old had cut a rag dolls hair. She held me by the cheeks and she made me look in the mirror and tell myself how ugly I was. I remember telling myself that I was ugly.”

Wendy claims her youngest son Grant, is a “con artist” with a drinking problem and a history of abusing every woman he’s ever been with. Now, she’s advising his current girlfriend Korin, who is five months pregnant with the couple’s second child, to break things off and move on. “She’s called me because she’s scared out of her mind,” says Wendy. “He’s screaming at her – he would push her out onto the deck.
