John Cameron is a former FBI, cold case, task force worker and a retired police sergeant. He is also an author. John wrote a book about a serial killer, that at one time was on the FBI’s 10 most wanted fugitives list and, allegedly, ‘specialized’ in ‘framing’ other people for his crimes. In fact, this serial killer went completely undetected until his own daughter turned him in! His name was Edward Wayne Edwards, and you probably didn’t even know he existed.

John’s book, on this man’s life, has re-formed the opinions of many an arm chair sleuth and those lovers of Making A Murderer. John only has to throw out a few well known facts about this killer and his theory on who really killed Theresa Halbach, will make you start to wonder a bit too.


edward-edwards-1962Edward Wayne Edwards was born in Akron, Ohio. After witnessing the suicide of his mother, Edward was sent to live in an orphanage, where he was abused, both physically and emotionally. As a young adult, he joined the US Marines for a brief time but soon returned and stepped quickly into a criminal lifestyle. He lived most of his life, when not incarcerated for one crime or another, in Louisville, Kentucky.

Between 1977 and 1996, Edward murdered 5 people in Wisconsin and Ohio. Two in 1977, two in 1980 and one in 1996.

In tracing his life, Edward Wayne Edwards can actually be placed in US cities where unsolved murders have occurred. These cities include Portland, OR, Great Falls, MT and San Francisco, CA. It is also thought that Edwards could be responsible for some of the most notorious unsolved murders that remain on the books in the United States today. And we are talking some pretty big ones.  Like Chanda Levy, JonBenét Ramsey, The West Memphis Three and the Robin Hood Hills Murders, to mention just a few.

Edwards was finally captured on July 30th in 2009 in Jefferson, Wisconsin. His daughter turned him in! He was convicted for the deaths of five people, including his own adopted son, for the insurance money. However, many an investigator believe that Edwards could be responsible for far more murders than we know.


halbachWell, let’s start with the fact that Edward Edwards was in Wisconsin at the time of the murder! He was actually living about one hour from Steven Avery’s house. And let’s face it, Steven Avery was a celebrity of sorts in that nick of the woods. The media had spent years spouting off about the Avery’s and any person looking for a fall guy, might just take a real hard look at that poor sap.

Many of  Edwards’ victims were killed on Halloween. That’s when Halbach was presumed murdered. Photographer Teresa Halbach disappeared on October 31, 2005. Her last known appointment for that day was with Steven Avery, at his home on the grounds of Avery’s Auto Salvage.

Edwards often made appearances at funerals or trials of his past victims.

How does that have any relevance with Teresa Halbach’s murder, you may ask? Well, some habits are hard to break, I guess. If you are a fan and one of those people who watched the Making A Murderer documentary and have followed the case, then you just may have seen the man some investigators are saying is Mr. Edward Wayne Edwards himself! Yep, right there, on the big screen, for the whole world to see, lingering in the background of a scene on episode six of Making A murderer! (pic below)

Oh…and Edwards was identified when he was seen appearing in the background of a documentary about the West Memphis Three! Is that weird or what? Hiding right there in plain sight. Of course, until his daughter spilled all of the beans, no one would have been the wiser.

Needless to say, John Cameron and his theory are causing a bit of a stir and dare I say, for Avery fans, a bit of hope!

Edward Wayne Edwards died in 2011.
