          Steven Avery, whose story was told in the hit Netflix series "Making A Murderer," is serving a life sentence for the 2005 murder of Wisconsin photographer Teresa Halbach.

          "Immediately after watching the documentary I felt compelled to reach out to him right away," says Hartman, 53, who wrote Avery a letter. "I told him that I was in the process of a divorce and that I was feeling lonely at home ... I sent a couple of pictures of myself with the letter and asked him if he wanted to write back and forth to get to know each other."
